Matt Chapman dropped a slick 'Talladega Nights' reference after hitting his first walk-off home run

Friday night was a big night for A's third baseman Matt Chapman, who crushed a Brad Hand pitch deep to left field for a walk-off homer in the A's 4-3 win over the Indians. It was Chapman's first career walk-off hit, and it was quite a blast.

How did it feel for Chapman hitting his first-ever walk-off homer? He was excited, as you see in the clip atop this post ... although he wasn't quite sure what to do with his hands.

That last quote ought to sound familiar to fans of auto racing legend Ricky Bobby ...

Great quote, Chappy.
