Young Rangers Fan Flexes, Continues Baseball's Streak of Good Sports Kids

Dan Carson@@DrCarson73Trending Lead WriterSeptember 29, 2015

While bereft of the nonstop action and blunt force trauma so prized in most American sports, baseball continues to corner the market on good sports children.

I don't know why this is. Probably something in the water. But baseball has the best, most entertaining sports kids, as illustrated time and again by such icons as hip-swiveling Marlins boy and John Pizzi the Dad Saver. And it's not even close.

With this said, we now add another to their ilk: Flex Boy, the Texas Rangers fan who started Ric Flair-ing before he knew cameras were on him and ramped it up further when he saw himself on the big screen during Monday's game against the Detroit Tigers.

The following is the inner monologue I imagine going on in Flex Boy's mind. It consists of a series of things he sees followed by his go-to move. I find it works best to the instrumental of Kendrick Lamar's "Swimming Pools (Drank)":

Pour up. Flex. 

Moon shot. Flex.

Fly ball. Flex.

Recess. Flex.

Sit down. Flex.

Stand up. Flex.

Playoffs. Flex.

Playoffs. Flex.

Bless him.
