I have a few rules I live by and one of them is pretty simple. When people much smarter than me talk, I listen. So when Bill Nye The Science Guy tweets about not sliding into first base, I nod my head in agreement. “Yes Bill, you’re the one with the 180 IQ, I just make GIFs for a living.”
Nye of course, was referring to this crucial play in the 3rd inning of Game 7, when Eric Hosmer stupidly slid into first base.

So now that we have confirmation, let’s go ahead and NEVER SLIDE INTO FIRST BASE AGAIN! Ok everyone. Bill Nye said so.
