It’s a sure sign you’ve lost the plot when a shot at catching a home run ball takes precedence over celebrating the actual home run. Take, for instance, Edwin Encarnacion’s home run in the bottom of the third inning last night versus Baltimore. A fan bro seated in the first row beyond the left centerfield fence narrowly missed catching Encarnacion home run ball 16/42.
What we’ve got here is failure to celebrate. Some men, they just can’t catch. So you get what we had here last night — which is the way he wants it.
Well, he gets it.
And I don’t like it anymore than you.
Let’s take a look from a closer angle…
There’s so much going on here. First of all, I’ll forgive this 20-something for bringing his ball glove out to the game on account the undue risk to a man’s cock and balls now associated with sitting in the outfield seats. There’s also the expression of fan bro’s friend seated to his left… is this guy also devastated at the lost shot at home run ball glory, or is he an Orioles fan? Let’s not overlook the healthy feed of mockery directed at our protagonist here either… not that every ounce of it isn’t warranted.
