Evan Gattis falls during swing, causes tremors that will reverberate through Earth for all eternity

You may have thought it was funny to see Evan Gattis slip and fall down while taking a swing in the Astros' 4-2 win in over the Rangers on Sunday. Yes, ha-ha, so funny. People falling down makes us laugh.

But remember who's falling down in this instance: El Oso Blanco -- a man who hits one-handed home runs, smashes wood over his shoulder and "shakes the ground when he walks."

So, of course, when his mighty, muscle-torn figure tumbled to the ground ...

Gattis would ignore the utter catastrophe he caused and single later in the at-bat.
