So Call Me Maybin

I'm incredibly late to this, but back on July 2nd, San Diego center fielder Cameron Maybin hit a home run that was estimated to have traveled 485 feet. If you don`t believe me, watch the video below. I`ll wait for you, it's only 48 seconds.

Oh good, you`re back! Well, that very home run put the name Cameron Maybin at the forefront of my mind. Around the same time, the song "Call Me Maybe" by Carly Rae Jepsen was (and still is) making the rounds of popular culture... and I think you see where I'm going with this. I can't hear his name without the chorus of that song popping into my head, and I can't hear that song without thinking about Cameron Maybin. 

Of course, as one is expected to do when trying to exorcise mental demons, I made an animated GIF.

Now let's hope Cameron keeps hitting moonshots like that, and I never have to hear that song again.
