    Idiot almost kills himself trying to catch a baseball during the Home Run Derby.

    <a class="postlink" href="http://www.foxnews.com/sports/2011/07/12/fan-nearly-falls-from-stands-during-homer-derby/?test=faces" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;">http://www.foxnews.com/sports/2011/07/1 ... test=faces</a>


    A guy died in TX this past weekend trying to catch a ball as well, it was plastered all over the news. He had to have seen the story, it was in the sports section. I imagine this cuckolder probably thought he could outdo that guy.

    I mean look at this dipshit-




    Does he think he can just tuck and roll once he hits the concrete 20 feet below?

    Maybe he was a parkour master, who knows?

    Anyway kind of a broad topic but because I don't give two shits about sports I usually forget to run sports threads unless they show up in the suggestion board. Let's hear'em.

    I don't think I really started hating the Yankees until about 15 years ago (when their fanbase across North America quintupled for some strange reason) when their fans started to think it was in good sport to run onto the field whenever the opposing team was about to make the game-winning out, therefore resetting the play. Much less steal deep pop flys from visiting outfielders for home runs. Wade Boggs, class act that he's always been actually signed the fucking ball a fan scooped out of a visting player's glove for a home run and thanked him for the cheating. Yep. I saw this shit countless times in the late 90's early 2000's, even to a point where fan intereference actually was the turning point in the Yankees winning a playoff series. These are facts.

    Fucking pathetic.

    The only ball that's worth catching was Jeters 3000th hit, and the guy returned it.

    Doesnt matter though, the Sox are going to beat the Phillies in 4 games in the World Series anyway.

    I went to a game in the new Yankees stadium about a month ago, and those atavistic moonheads were everywhere. It was Yankees vs. Rockies, and I (a Red Sox fan) had gone with a friend of mine who switched allegiances from New York to Colorado a couple years back because he was fed up with the Yankees buying their way to the pennant. Every time a Rockies player got a hit, we would stand up and cheer while being continuously heckled by a late 50s obese male with a drinking problem and the vocabulary of a Post-It.

    "Shut up, HICKS!"
    "Siddown, MORMONS!"
    "Go home, GEEKS!"

    I imagine that in his mind, this guy was still the tough guy of P.S. 214, swaggering down the hallways pushing kids into lockers. It was kind of like Biff in Back to the Future, but the later ones where he's a washed-up, stretched-out and overinflated jock balloon. I'm not sure why, but this species of lowbrowed jabroni seems particular to Yankees Stadium.

    And the hot dogs are a rip-off, too.

    FOCUS: Retards in sports.[/quote]

    Oct 2, 2002, Giants at Braves, Game 1 NLDS, 4:00 pm(ish)

    Giants were up 8-2 in the 7th inning and it's not looking good for the Braves. I was seated on the front row, field level just past the Giants dugout, with my buddy. The fans to my right on the aisle left a few minutes earlier, so Buddy and I spread out. I have my glove, of course, as it is primo foul ball territory. (I've caught several balls in those seats, btw.)

    A foul ball comes skittering our way, I lean over and it's just out of my reach. In seven innings, I have consumed several beers, and I turn to Buddy and say, "I coulda had that if I dove." Buddy says, "You should dive next time." Me, "Nah, dude, I'll get thrown out."

    After about a minute of discussing this and its potential ramifications, I have made up my mind that "the next time" I will dive, thinking that there won't really be a next time. The VERY next pitch is fouled our way again. Here comes the ball, bouncing / rolling on the ground. I'm gonna get it. Here I go. I dive. I'm about to land on the warning track. I do.

    Only, I didn't need to dive. I overshot what I could've reached by simply leaning over, and the ball hits me in the chest. I quickly jump up, grab the ball, prepare to scramble back over the wall. Only, Security puts a hand on my shoulder. Me, "Shit." Oh well, I toss the ball to Buddy.

    Security latches on to me and has called the cops, who are walking my way. Then it gets hilarious. All the fans in our section are yelling at Security to let me go, trying to wave off the cops. "He was pushed!" "It was an accident!" "Come on, don't kick him out!" and so forth. However, Security is determined. The cops are about 4 steps away when Vendor Guy steps in. "Nah, it's cool. Let him stay."

    After some discussion, more fan yelling, and more Vendor Guy negotiations, they let me stay. (I tipped Vendor Guy.) And, I have the ball.

    I wish I could find audio (Braves radio) of the game. I heard later from a couple coworkers listening at work that Skip Caray had said, "Gryboski gets the sign. Aaand the 2-2 pi-- wait. It won't be made because some idiot is on the field. It looks like they're escorting him out. Oh, no, wait. They're going to let him stay." Or something like that.

    I was that idiot! Yay, beer!

    Wasn't there an incident where Phillies fans threw batteries at a guy hired to dress up as Santa and give free shit to kids?

    Oh yeah, and the guy who stuck his finger down his throat and purposefully puked on a little girl.

    Are you kidding me Crown?

    Jeffrey Maier had just turned 12 years old when he tried to catch that Jeter "home run". It wasn't some sort of Yankee fan conspiracy to ruin playoff series' for the other team, it was a kid trying to catch a home run ball. More than that though, it was a terrible call by Rich Garcia, but to take it as some sort of proof that Yankees fans are asshole is just wrong.

    BTW, it was the first game of a series they wound up winning 4-1.

    Ugh. I see where this thread is going already. Can we stick to specific instances and bring the funny rather than trash entire cities for their sports fans? Not that I wouldn't love to dog Philly sports all day, but we've all done that (tired) thread many times before.

    Focus, people.

    Not batteries, but glass bottles. Santa got knocked out and had to go to the hospital.

    Shut your cheesesteak hole.

    We have had a big deal made here in the Santa Cruz area about some guy who was beaten into a coma by a couple of gang-bangers because the guy was wearing a Giants Jersey at a Dodgers game.

    Incidents like that are one of the main reasons I really don't like sports. The simple act of being a fan can turn so many into retards. Rioting, general soccer hooliganism. There is more activity going on in soccer in the stands from the hooligans than there is on the field.

    Weeell... I live in Vancouver, and:


    I've always figured, with sports, if you're actually yelling at the TV, there's no WAY you honestly care that much and you should quit posing. Or if you do care that much, there's medication available.

    Anti-focus: Any Canadians remember flamesgirls.ca? That's how to show support.

    Pretty sure the Flyers had some battery-throwing going on though.

    Yeah, the batteries were first thrown at Dick Allen the teams only black player at the time in the sixties. Then they were thrown at J.D. Drew after he signed with the Cardinals instead of the Philly's (Aug. 10,1999).

    Ive wondered how more people aren't falling over these railings. Even as a short guy those rails are just at the perfect pivoting point for failing over, for taller people it'd be worse. It's also one of those things where you kind of get swept up in the moment of a ball flying right at you, you're not thinking of anything but reaching for the ball.
