A couple of hippies in a canoe nearly went overboard in McCovey Cove (video)
Kicking back in a kayak, canoe catamaran or any other smallish seafaring vessel while waiting for home run balls to plunge into the waters of McCovey Cove outside of AT&T Park has become a time-honored tradition for San Francisco Giants fans not terrified by water.
Two hippies taking it sleazy in a kayak almost learned the hard way that the sea can be a cruel mistress as one of the guys nearly fell into the water while attempting to retrieve a long, towering foul ball off the bat of Kung Fu Panda, also known as Giants third baseman Pablo Sandoval, during the third inning as the Giants hosted the Philadelphia Phillies.Via MLB.com:
Nice flannels, bros. Forget the suggestion that they’re a couple of San Francisco-based hippies still believing that Haight-Ashbury is still the place to be, these guys are stuck in the grunge era of the early ’90s. I’m laying 10-1 odds that one of them is wearing a Nirvana shirt. You know, strictly for the irony. The other guy? Man, he’s wearing a Mudhoney tee because he keeps it real.
On the other hand, they do kind of look like HGTV’s the Property Brothers.
Hey, it’s possible.
