Just when I’d thought I’d seen everything in baseball, BAM! Two new things in two days.
First thing. At my son’s baseball game a couple days ago eight kids from the opposing team threw up during the game. Eight! That’s got to be some kind of baseball record, right? The chain reaction allegedly started when a old guy wandered by the duggout with a cigar. I guess the smoke triggered the first kid to roll out of the duggout and chunk, then six more followed, one after another.
They almost had to forfeit, I mean barfeit the game. The eighth and final kid singled and was standing on first when he projectile vomited. Amazing. The stench was overwhelming. One of the craziest and, I know I sound like a jerk but, one of the funniest things I’ve ever seen on a ball field until….
The Second thing happened. I was watching a Big East baseball game yesterday and during the course of a 5 hour rain delay UCONN and USF had a dance off. Yes, you read that right, a dance off. And not just any dance off, these guys were getting it. This is my new Funniest Thing I’ve ever seen on a baseball field, stealing the crown from Ken Harvey and the barfing kids. Check it out here. DON’T miss this video! Trust me.
Man I love this game. It never ceases to amaze me. Here’s a photo of the USF dancing baseball troupe. You go boys.
