Impressive catch, but too much spillage?

Impressive catch, but too much spillage?

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.

The Good:

  • 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)

The Bad:

  • 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.
