Manny Ramirez finally hit his first home run in the Chinese Baseball League from Taiwan, and it nearly brought down the entire stadium.
Deadspin spotted the one video that will brighten your day. Like that family portrait you keep on your desk at work, it will remind you of all the familiar things you hold dear.
In this case, it's ManRam hitting a home run and running the bases as you shake your head and offer, "Oh, Manny. Never change."
The at-bat comes in the seventh inning with Ramirez's EDA Rhinos trailing 8-4. The former MLB player who was as entertaining as he was talented steps into the box with palpable excitement filling the stadium.
Really, the actual call of the home run is nearly as classic as the hit itself. I have no idea what is being said, and welcome anyone who knows to chime in, but the bedlam that follows the ball going over the wall is all I need to get through the remainder of the week.
While I didn't understand the entirety of the call, I did pick out something at the 2:37 mark, "See you later." And that is all I can hope as Ramirez continues to play ball in Taiwan, that we will indeed see him later.
Only next time, if he could do something insane we would appreciate it. Home runs are nice and all, but we have given him more than enough time to produce an international "Manny being Manny" moment.
Get on it, Taiwan.
Hit me up on Twitter for more international sizzle.
