New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is known for a lot of things, among them being intimidatingly smart, being intimidatingly rich, and being intimidatingly uptight. He is not particularly noted for his stylish way around the vernacular, either physical or literary.

“When @MLB announced the 2013 All-Star game was going to be at Citi Field, I was like http://bit.ly/Jketv4” @MikeBloomberg tweeted.

More than 265 retweets later, the gif of Mayor Bloomberg high-fiving mascot Mr. Met spread to Tumblr, where it garnered 194 notes and uncounted high-fives among baseball fanswhich means all of us, amirite?

We, ourselves, were all like:
