Padres groundskeeper uses rain delay to show off his wicked dance moves

Did you hear? It rained in San Diego on Thursday night. Like, a lot.

It rained so much that the Padres' game against the Nationals was delayed for nearly two hours after playing just a single out in the first inning -- it was just the sixth delay since the ballpark opened in 2004.

Now, imagine you were a fan at Petco Park during this rain delay. What kind of entertainment do you hope for? Mascot shenanigans, naturally. Conversation with your fellow fans, absolutely. A game on your phone, maybe, if you're desperate.

How about a groundskeeper grooving his heart out?

Those moves, along with all the hard work the grounds crew put in during the delay?

Bravo, everyone. BRAVO.
