Ian Kinsler takes a brutal slide into third base

Sliding is Baseball 101, right? Well, Ian Kinsler forgot the basics sliding into third.

Wanna see a brutal slide into third base?

Of course you do. This is the Internet after all.

And face plants are one of the key foundations of how people enjoy the interwebs.

Enter Texas Rangers second baseman Ian Kinsler

The simple act of sliding head-first into third base should be elementary to Major Leaguers. 

Too bad the baseball gods decided to mess with Kinsler on Thursday night.

Instead of head-first, Kinsler went more face-first into third base.  To add insult to injury, Kinsler banged the top of his head on the base before having his momentum carry him right past the bag.
