Did you know...

That today was National High Five Day? Neither did I. Until my boy Pierre Robert on MMR told me so, this afternoon as I was driving back to work after picking up some lunch.

Seriously, who doesn't love to high 5? It's something you learn to do at like age 1.5, and you keep doing forever. It's the international sign of "alright!" or "good job!" and can really turn that frown upsidedown.

In sports, the high 5 is the utilmate congratulatory gesture. An almost involuntary response to everything that is good about sports. Athtletes high 5 one another after an on-field achievement, fans who are perfect strangers will high 5 when your home team gets that big play, or scores the winning touchdown, or drives in the go ahead run.

On this perfect spring day, I offer you some images of the "up-high," the "down-low," and even the "gimme 10."

Happy High 5 Day everyone!

Give me 19....

Up high...
Down low...

Give his eminence 10...

Oooh... left him hangin

Kyle Orton's neck beard is unruly...

The other half of Vin Da Bona's bread and butter....

This recognized day begs the question... when is National Pat-On-The-Ass Day?

And, of course, National Crotch Grab Day.
