Padres' Yasmani Grandal and Everth Cabrera Slide on Tarp During Rain Delay

You are never too old to act like a kid—especially when it comes to playing in the rain.

During a rain delay before Tuesday's game in Philadelphia, the San Diego Padres' Yasmani Grandal and Everth Cabrera made the best of the situation by sliding around on the tarp:

It's the best of both worlds. The players get to have some fun, and the fans can get a good laugh at watching the players mess around. The managers may not be fully on board with the fun, but until someone gets hurt from sliding on tarp, it's a great way for players to kill time.
