Why Michael Morse drops flying elbows on his teammates

But what does it all mean? Our man Adam Kilgore asked Werth; “you gotta ask Mikey about that,” Werth responded with a laugh.

And so, Morse, your thoughts?

“Like a flying elbow on the helmet there,” Morse described, accurately. “It’s great. It shows personality and a little character of the team. It shows that we’re having fun. We’re all friends here.”

And how did it start?

“Jayson had a big home run, maybe a week ago or two weeks ago,” Morse said. “I didn’t know what to do. I was so excited. So I just kind of — I gave him a high five. But he was kind of, he didn’t pay attention to me. So I just elbow him in the head. I got his attention!”

As another man made famous by his flying elbow drops might have put it, “Bow down to the kingdom of the madness!”

Oooooh yeahhhhhh.
