Michael Bourn and the redemption of the 2011 Braves' season

While last night was both crushing (see the Braves) and exhilarating (see the Rays), my mood was mostly dour due to the Braves completely choking away the season in which they showed so much potential. At one point when it was looking like the Braves were going down, Bourn was on base and cheered me up if only for a brief moment with this nosepick. There is less facial contortion than typical of a nosepick of this style, but that is just a testament to his athletic ability. With how fast he is too, I'm lucky to have caught this in time. So now the Braves say goodbye to the 2011 season disappointingly, but they can always cling to that special moment when the season was on the line and Bourn still found time to pick his nose. One Shining Moment.
