Awesome Video: 4th Outfielder At Yankee Stadium
This has already been on Barstool NY, but it's funny as shit so I'm writing about it anyway.
This just goes to show the difference between Yankee fans and other fans. Mets fans just sit on their ass and whine and boo as their team lays stinkbomb after stinkbomb on the field and then line up to call into WFAN the next day. Red Sox fans sit and message each other back and forth on the Blackberries and barely even watch the game, then stand up to sing "Sweet Caroline" and call it a day. But Yankee fans not only show up and pay attention to what's going on, some of them actually GET INVOLVED IN THE GAME.
I mean look at this guy! He's got that whole bleacher section covered. No way anything is sneaking through the gaps on his watch. He doesn't even acknowledge autograph seekers as they come up to him. No sir, he's 100% focused on the task at hand, and that's the sign of a championship-caliber team. Sure, you can make the argument that any ball that reaches him is already a home run and so it doesn't really matter what he does, but that's not the point here. The point is, this guy is dedicated to the max and you would never see anything like this at another ballpark. Shit, most other ballparks can't even get enough people in the bleachers themselves let alone guys who think they're part of the game.
P.S.- Wish I had a 12-pack of whatever that dude was drinking or an eighth of whatever he was smoking because I refuse to believe that he's that legit crazy enough to show up at a game and do this.
P.P.S.- How about a little stability on the camera holding there, Michael J. Fox. I felt like I was watching that video from the bow of a passing ship in rough waters.
P.P.P.S- The balls on the guy in the Santana jersey at the 1:20 mark. Go home, you fucking clown.
