Check out this entertaining, perfectly timed sports graphics gallery


Deadspin has a roundup of 10 animated GIFs showing incidents where sports graphics managed to coincidentally match up to the on screen action in entertaining ways.

Take, for example, the image shown above, where team manager Rafael Benitez was shown on screen making a right to left motion with his hand. As he did, the network airing the game happened to animate in a lower third with his name that’s almost perfectly timed and aligned with his hand as it sweeps across the screen.

Other gems includes an animated Aflac duck that was part of a sponsored lower third that appears to narrowly avoid getting trampled by a coach and two players who butt chests just as an animated burst of light that’s part of a “Goal” stinger appears on screen.
