Holiday special: 12 GIFs of Christmas - The best of the rest


Did you catch our 12 GIFs of Christmas holiday series?

We certainly hope so, we enjoyed doing it, and surely hope you enjoyed reliving the 2013 sports year in short moving pictures.

Of course, with only 12 days in the 12 days of Christmas, we only had so many GIFs that could make the cut.

Here, loyal lovers of kind-of videos that are really classified as pictures, are the best of 2013 that just missed having a day dedicated to them.

Mark Derosa doing his best Tom Brady impersonation.

Speaking of Brady, here's the New England QB as Miley Cyrus.

This dog almost single-handedly took down the Tour De France.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi nearly murdered umpire Brian O'Nora.

Charlotte Bobcats swingman Gerald Henderson might have actually killed an unsuspecting fan.

We're afraid this poor Little Leaguer hasn't seen a curveball before.

Will Smith is a better actor than soccer player.

Manny being Manny, but in Japan.

Maybe the most hilarious photobomb of the year.

And finally, if you thought the Twins were bad, soak in the New York Mets.

Only 352 days until we can start the 2014 version of the 12 GIFs of Christmas. Frankly, we can't wait.
