Gravity has a crush on Robin Ventura, had (Tyler) Flowers delivered to him in the dugout

That's White Sox catcher Tyler Flowers going after a foul ball and instead being unceremoniously dumped in the dugout, where he was caught by his manager. Gravity can be cruel like that. Or, we can just think of it as the universal force's attempt to give Robin Ventura a present. After all, everyone likes to get Flowers.

... Hey, at least we didn't go with this joke:
