7. The Dick Bump
Early in the 2016 season I noticed a pretty strange phenomenon after a Cubs player hit a home run. Upon their return to the dugout, instead of high fiving each other, it appeared that the players were bumping their hips together. The more I saw it, it became clearer it wasn’t hip bumping but rather “dick bumping.”
Now as much as I want to take credit for coming up with such a great nickname like “dick bump,” I cannot claim that as my own. The Cubs have always had quirky ways to celebrate getting hits (helmet rub, pointing to bases) and the dick bump appeared to be the dugout celebration of choice in 2016.
If you want to laugh your ass off, watch Munenori Kawasaki’s face after Ross gives him a grade A dick bump.
