Pretty Solid Animal House Reference on Indians Twitter Last Night

After Michael Brantley's second two-run homer Tuesday night, during the Indians' 11-6 victory over the visiting Milwaukee Brewers, Brantley greeted Francisco Lindor at home plate with a secret handshake. It's one Brantley calls "the professional."

Unlike LeBron James' famously involved choreographed handshakes with individual teammates, Brantley's are all-business. Indeed, "The Professional" is merely a deliberate handshake.

After his first home-run, he shared a "Hulk Smash" handshake with second baseman Jason Kipnis.

The Indians' hyperactive Twitter persona, @Indians, chimed in with an apt pop-cultural reference, pasted dutifully below. (This is truly hot-off-the-presses journalism for your Wednesday morning, is it not?)
