Just a typical Patriot's Day game at Fenway
A little comedy to cope with yesterday's tragedy. The following incident occurred at the Patriot's Day game between the Boston Red Sox and Los Angeles Angels of Aneheim:
This clip has been in rotation on ESPN for the past day. But kudos to the Boston Herald's John Tomase, who actually tracked down those involved to get at the root causes of the incident:
Jason Sole just wanted to catch a foul ball. Matt Madore was merely trying to eat some pizza....Note to self: when taking son to Red Sox game, bring special pizza-protective clothing.
It should be noted that the Boston Globe abjectly failed to cover this pizza incident. [UPDATE: Drezner gets results from the Boston Globe's baseball blog!!!]
The Boston Herald -- politics, sports, and random pizza-throwing incidents. It's all there.
Jason Sole should be commended. He saved an out without fan interference. If only the pale SOX had such wonderful fans.posted by: BlueOx on 04.17.07 at 09:16 AM [permalink]
If you're going to show this clip, it really should be from NESN's footage, with commentary by Don Orsillo and the incomparable Jerry Remy. Not those bland ESPN talking heads.
Pizzagate fans, try here:
The Herald may be the worst paper I have ever read. The freaking Metro puts it to shame.posted by: Ben Cronin on 04.17.07 at 09:16 AM [permalink]
