Overambitious lady raises tray to catch foul ball, everything goes wrong

Saturday July 9th, 2016

This fan at Sunday's Giants-Diamondbacks game bit of a little more than they could chew.

A woman in a black Giants shirt and sunglasses decided it would be a good idea to raise her tray of food and beer up to try for a foul ball. Now, sometimes this strategy works out—we've seen some heroic fans trap a ball inside their beverage cups—but you need to know the risk that comes with the move.

This Giants fan clearly didn't. She didn't catch the ball, sent beer flying into the air, and seemed puzzled about the whole thing going awry.

What did you think was going to happen? Even if you snag that foul ball, beer is still going everywhere. Now you're out, like, $20 for the beer and food, and everyone is angry at you because they smell like Miller Lite.
