As a society we’ve yet to eradicate the glove-wearing adult man from Major League Baseball parks. If there’s any bright side, it’s that they occasionally turn in stunning displays of epic failure for our amusement.
Yesterday’s Mariners-Giants game was a celebration of dudes looking like ballplayers, but not playing like them.
First, we have this guy in the upper deck completely whiffing on a Joe Panik foul ball and allowing it to crash into a full beer. Check out the carnage.
Not to be outdone, another fan decked out in a Ken Griffey Jr. jersey fell over a railing and onto his face while also misplaying a foul ball.
So which glove-wearing, jersey-wearing fan embarrassed himself more? The beer explosion was pretty sweet but not as cringe-worthy as toppling over into the field of play and dirtying up the home white.
Good thing both of them had gloves. They’d have been lost otherwise.
