The 'high five' was invented in 1977 by a gay baseball player?

I saw a feature on SportsCenter tonight that blew my mind a little bit.  First, I don't for one second believe that in the history of history, no two people every slapped hands above their heads before the summer of 1977.

That's just impossible.

And second, I'm even more shocked by the fact that somehow I managed to go these past 38 years without ever hearing who Glenn Burke was.  If you don't know this story, it's worth investing nine minutes to watch the video.
