I almost looked like she was defending herself. Almost.


#3

The look of frustration/what the heck happened after she deflects the ball with the tray is wonderful.


#4

Looks like her neighbors took more of the “damage” than she did.


#5

Collateral damage. Probably only had to endure another couple of hours of processed cheese and watery beer spray until they could make it to a car wash for a good hosing down.


#6

I love how the woman to her right tries to get as far away as possible well in advance, infinitely more aware of the outcome than the nacho-bearer, followed by a look of utter disgust at the abject stupidity that just rained stadium junk food all over her.


#7

Won’t someone think of the jalapenos?!


#8

Maybe it wasn’t her first beer and nachos of the day.


#9

This made my day a little brighter.


#10

Except she looks a bit sad when she looks back at her tray and there’s no baseball. :disappointed:


#11

On the other end of the foul-ball/food-tray spectrum…


#12

Remind me not to sit next to you at a baseball game.


#13

On the plus side it looks like the ball deflected to land right at her feet, small payment for her suffering I suppose. :stuck_out_tongue:


#14

I think I’m okay with that.


#15

There wasn’t time to say “Hold my nachos and beer and watch this!”


#16

FTFY

(This is America after all, land of a minimum 9 word post)


#17

“And this here is my Paul Goldschmidt foul ball from AT&T Park.”

“Why does it smell like Velveeta and failure?”


#18

On the third axis of long-ball, baby:


#19

She maybe was just sharing her beer and nachos with everyone.

I will never understand people who bring babies to baseball games. This one survived, but the danger is real. I wouldn’t bring a child under 8 to a game, and I love baseball.
