I’ve asked this question on the air many times before and still haven’t heard an answer to it that makes any sense.
What is it about catching a foul ball or having a player throw you a ball at a baseball game that turns an otherwise normal, ordinary well-adjusted adult into a wretched, bombastic little ferret?
(Side note–just typing that last sentence was extremely cathartic…)
We’ve seen this scenario play out so many times before. The scene was Minute Maid Park in Houston, home to the Houston Astros, an organization who given their third straight 100 loss season, could use all the positive PR they can get.
It seems the adult woman in the front row wanted a ball so bad, that she was willing to physically wrestle it away from a little girl. Now, one would think that when she realizes what she’s done in the heat of the moment, that she would reconsider her abysmal behavior and give the ball to the kid.
One would think….
Cementing her place in our eternal contempt, she proceeds to mug for her friends while exchanging a few awkward high-fives.
Who are these people?
