Everybody loves a new celebrity couple, even if it’s just an onscreen romance or social media flirtation. The latest dream couple fans are demanding is Gina Rodriguez and Tessa Thompson. The “Annihilation” costars were featured in a couple of selfies posted by Rodriguez and the two already seem to have a lot of chemistry between the two of them. Here’s how this fan fantasy went from birthday selfie to a dream couple the fans are asking for.

Gina Rodriguez recently posted selfies of herself, Pedro Pascal, and Tessa Thompson for Thompson’s birthday.

Just a short, simple, sweet message wishing a coworker a happy birthday. Nothing to see here, right?

Then, one fan cropped Pascal out of the photos and a fantasy ‘ship was born.

Interesting how cropping a photo can totally change the vibe, right?

Thompson retweeted the fan’s post and things heated up.

Oh. My. God. ?

Then Rodriguez retweeted Thompson’s retweet…

… and the excitement continued to grow.

Agreed. ?? ?? ??

Some fans called for divine intervention to make it happen.

?? ?? ??

A couple fans closely examined the photos to see what was really going on between Rodriguez and Thompson.

Ummmm, what is going on here?! ?

It brought many people to *virtual* tears.

It’s just beautiful, really.

Someone suggested that Emmy-winning writer Lean Waithe get involved to make it happen.

Waithe made history at this year’s Emmy awards when she became the first African-American woman to win for Outstanding Writing in a Comedy Series for her work on “Master of None.”

Waithe responded, saying she is down.

Hear that? That’s the sound of hearts around the world skipping a beat.

Hollywood, the fans have spoken.

Let’s make Gessa a thing already.

One Of The Smallest Players In Baseball Had One Of The Biggest Games In Playoff History

People who are underestimated for their size have a wonderful ambassador after game 1 of the American League Division series between the Houston Astros and Boston Red Sox. The Houston Astros’ José Altuve put on a show, and people were reminded not to underestimate us shorties.

The Astros beat Boston 8 to 2, but the true winner last night was Altuve, who hit three home runs in the game.

There aren’t many baseball players that have been able to do exactly what he did last, in fact there’s only 8 players in the history of baseball that have ever hit three home runs in a postseason game

Here’s a refresher on Altuve: the Venezuelan pro-baller stands at 5’6″.

Now 5’6″ doesn’t seem that short, in fact, I’d give anything to be that tall (I’m only 5’2) but in baseball that is relatively tiny. The average height for baseball players, according to Sports Chart, is roughly between 5’11” and 6’3″.

Sports Illustrated reports that Altuve’s baseball career almost never happened. He tried out for the Astros in 2006 when he was 16 and was turned away because he was too short. But he didn’t give up and returned the next day, eventually proving himself and scoring a contract.

Whoever plays well should have the right to play,” Altuve said in 2014 in Sports Illustrated. Altuve also credits his dad for continuing to give him advice about the game. “Every day he has something to say.”

Here’s some inspiring words for those wishing to be pro baseball players but have a small build:

Altuve is always asked about his height (because people make fun of him a lot), and every single time, he answers with grace and maturity.

After hitting three home runs last night, he joins the likes of Babe Ruth and Reggie Jackson.

Only 8 players have hit three home runs in a postseason game, and the last time that happened was by San Francisco Giants’ Pablo Sandoval in 2012. Now, Altuve is the 9th player to join this exclusive club.

Here’s the select few who have hit three home runs in the history of baseball.

As you can see from the list above, the past four players have all been Latino.

Not only did Altuve have a great game, he’s had a great season. Altuve is one of the frontrunners to win American League MVP. ESPN notes that his stats have been impressive all season. “Altuve crushing the Red Sox is nothing new. He hit .417 against them this season. How good a year was it for him? That was his seventh-best batting average against any team, fourth-best against an American League team.”
