Fan catches ball in beer cup, chugs and rescues ball
- Updated: April 11, 2013
There’s not bound to be much excitement at Safeco when your hometown Mariners trail the woeful Astros 8-3 in the eighth. Luckily, there are still foul balls to provide some form of entertainment. Not following? Check out the impressive clip below.
- Fan proactively using his cup as the intended “glove” for said foul ball
- Fan making a catch of ball in cup despite traffic and competition from other fans
- Fan deciding he must chug the beer in order to rescue the foul ball (DUH, but well done doing your duty)
- In his understandable jubilation at this tremendous grab and recognition of the need to chug, the fan begins the chug far too aggressively leading to an unnecessary and unacceptable amount of spillage (although we sympathize with the physics of the situation and how it plays a role in a difficult flow to contain…so to speak)
All in all, a solid effort and worth a replay. Since the M’s weren’t providing many.
