During Tuesday evening’s tilt between the San Diego Padres and Colorado Rockies at Coors Field, a fan made a nice catch of a foul ball off the bat of Rockies center fielder Dexter Fowler by utilizing the only receptacle he had available: His beer cup.
Nice sudsy souvenir, sir. The only appropriate thing to do here is to defer to the Padres broadcasting tandem of Dick Enberg and Mark Grant for the requisite pun-tastic wordplay. Here’s Grant’s take on the beer cup catch: “No bad hops in that one!” Uh, zing? At least Enberg was there to back up his partner with, “Ohhh, yeah, I can see where you coming from.” What a team. Granted, not as inappropriately hilarious as when Grant and Enberg discussed crushing Dodger Dogs while admiring two comely lasses wearing Dodger Dog hats, but it will do.
But here’s one question: Why didn’t the guy slam the beer afterward with the ball still in the cup like this guy did? That’s just “pour” form if you ask me.
Sorry, I couldn’t help myself.
