Athletes Left Hanging

Athletes are good at a lot of things: dunking, hitting, throwing, running, giving it "110 percent," taking it "one game at a time," appearing in horrible commercials looking for lost chicken wings, putting inappropriate stuff on social media, to name a few. But athletes can be shockingly bad at receiving high fives.

Check out a history of athletes being left hanging through gifs.
