Listen, I’m sure there will be people out there that will say this guy is a jerk or an asshole or a grown up baby. But all I saw in that video was a guy making a fantastic play on the ball right before it was going to drop in that someone else’s hand. All’s fair in love, war, and foul balls. Was the strut off directly in the woman’s face a bit much? Were the theatrics a little over the top? Did I feel like I was watching the greatest WWF villain of all time with the fist pumps and cut off sleeves? Maybe, but again, I saw this as nothing more than a teaching lesson. You see this face lady.
Bet that didn’t feel good now did it? Well if you don’t want to ever have that feeling again you remember one thing. A foul ball is not caught until it’s resting in your hands, next time close better and make a play, that’s what winners do.
I’m not one of those “America is going down the drains and we’re all becoming wusses” guy but this is bullshit. She’s a grown woman. The only people that get pity balls are children under the age of 7. You want a ball, you get your own damn ball, this is America, that means foul balls are earned, not given.
