No Hands . . .

PNC Park, Pittsburgh


During a recent rainy visit to watch the Pirates on dollar ticket night – hey, they had to do something to attract fans while the Penguins were playing playoff hockey, although there were probably only 8,000 people in the stands anyway – my husband and I were lucky enough to run into a father and son who couldn’t sit in the front row of the left field bleachers because the 6 year old couldn’t see over the fence.

That’s right, they gave us their seats.  Close enough to pat the left fielder on the tookas . . .

My husband Jason tells the little boy with his tiny glove on, “If I get a ball from Nyjer Morgan (Buccos’ left fielder) I am going to give it to you.”  The kid was thrilled!  A promise of a real, live, major league game used baseball . . . you could plainly see that he could feel it in his little hands already.

So what happens?

Before the beginning of the first inning, Jason is yelling for Nyjer to throw the warm up ball to him, and I mean really workin’ it for that ball to give to the young man like he promised.   Nyjer Morgan turns around and obliges.  Here it comes!  Jason tries to balance a beer in his left hand as he reaches up to snag it out of the air.  Then THUD . . . .

It hit him right in the palm as his $8 beer was spilling out of the cup . . . and he missed it.  It bounced off of his hand, onto the ground where a fan with a glove scooped it up . . . 

Nyjer Morgan waves him off with a big smile on his face as if to say, “how’d ya miss that McFly?”  A minute later, after the crowd dissipated, that cute, wide-eyed, grateful little boy comes over to Jason and says


Then walked away . . .

It was one of the funniest scenes I had ever well, seen . . .
