So if you were watching the game last night in the bottom of the 6th inning, you had to have seen the Angels fan that took a dive into the waterfalls beyond the outfield walls. When we saw it, immediately we busted out in laughter. Our friend who we watched the game with couldn’t get enough. Here’s this guy, drunken and in jeans and Jimmy Connors tennis shoes, living the American Dream in front of an entire nation. And his team was winning.
It lasted maybe only 10 to 15 seconds. But it was great comic relief and liberating just to watch. You have to love how he ended his triumphant run raising his arms to the sky (pictured above) like he’d done some great feat.
Thank God for beer sold at baseball games. It never fails to bring out these characters.
