Twins fan feeds girlfriend sunflower seeds during game (GIF)


Unfortunately, any Minnesota Twins fans in the St. Petersburg area on Tuesday who took in their favorite team facing the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field were dealt with suffering through another agonizing, borderline unwatchable (other than Oswaldo Arcia’s colossal derp when trying to field a foul popup) loss. So, said fans had to do whatever it took to amuse themselves as they sat inside the sterile, sparsely populated Tropicana Field seats.

Two fans in particular elected to engage in some food-play to pass the time. Watch as a Twins fans feeds his girlfriend what appears to be sunflower seeds.

The Big Lead likens the act to how one would feed a baby bird, an apt and fitting comparison:

And look: They were named the “Pepsi Fans of the Game” as well. Good on them.

While it’s unclear why she could not feed herself with her own hands, I’m just relieved we could actually see her hands, if you know what I mean. If you don’t, I suppose that’s probably for the best. Let’s just say a broadcast of Major League Baseball is for everyone, including children, and leave it at that.
