Last Thursday, USF & UCONN's baseball teams were stuck in a 5 & 1/2 hour rain delay during the Big East semifinals. What to do. What to do. BASEBALL DANCE-OFF! (12:16 video)

They crank dat, there's some limbo, riverdancing, ticking, choreographed, solo - oh it's all in there.

What I find interesting is the fact that, besides the ballplayers themselves, the cameraman seems to have been the only witness to the event as it happened. There seems to be no one in the stands. Good work cameraman.

I love to see healthy young men frolicking like that. It gives me hope. Very entertaining stuff. Gave me a hearty laugh today.

The perfect venue for NSA gay bomb testing. I'm not surprised.

Is that the Lord of the Dance at 7:10?? Irish boys, bring it!

#19's interpretation of the Macarena might be the most hilarious version I've ever seen.

Man, the only thing we ever did during rain delays was get wet. Awesomely stupid and senseless.

Awesome. Thanks for posting this.

I think USF won.

I don't watch sports, but I'd sit in the rain to watch that!

Strange. I found it difficult to watch.

I mean, that's the best these guys got?

Word of warning: Don't bring it to Miami!

I can't believe I watched the whole thing - that was a lot better than I expected. #19 could do a pretty mean jig, if not a macarena...

I'm sure Soulja Boi will remember this fondly when he's Soulja Old Man.

I have a friend that plays baseball for USF to call.

I had no idea guys could do the splits like that.

I think it was between him and the walking-on-hands guy for the win.

Ok, that was 12 minutes very well spent. Sort of like a WWI Christmas truce, but with dancing.

I liked it...I always feel a little better when I see a group of people (and it's important that it's a group, kinda shrugging of the collective peer pressure), just have fun in a silly, non-harmful way.

I get a similar feeling when I see an old couple dance and they stop to canoodle.

Still, the most important question is not answered in that link:

WHO WON THE GAME?

You realize he had his pants on his arms and his jersey on his legs, right?

I had the same experience watching this video as I did when I accidentally walked in on my parents having sex.

That's what made it awesome.
