Baseball Food Collision: Don’t Be Ridiculous

The Detroit Tigers aren’t involved in this incident, but it demands to be included anyway. Sometimes fans are lucky enough to catch a foul ball during a game. Every now and then some spectator manages to grab two in the same contest. But this Dodgers fan, deep in enemy territory, has the distinction of making a fool of himself twice in the same game.

On his first attempt he forsakes a box full of fries as he awkwardly flails for a foul ball. He is rewarded for his effort, and those around him mostly seem happy to share in his joy, if not in his fries. A pricey slice of pizza goes flying the second time he bumbles his way out of dinner, and those around him no longer seem amused. Their angry reaction calls to mind another of television’s great food-related mishaps.
