Dad Fails Spectacularly Trying To Reel In A Foul Ball For His Disappointed Son


Remember when you came home from basketball tryouts and had to report to your father that you made the JV team? This wouldn’t be so humiliating if you weren’t a senior, but whether you like it or not, you were only chosen to be on the team to drive the kids to the games when the parents were absent. Do you remember the look on your father’s face when you told him all the resources he sunk into you were wasted? Of course you do, that shit stays with you like bad credit.

There are very few instances when the roles are reversed, when the father shoulders the humiliation and the offspring gives that look of sheer disappointment. Welp, that’s exactly what happened at the Rangers game last night when a father tried to reel in a. souvenir for his hopeful son.

Spoiler alert: he failed. And lost a $12 stadium beer in the process.

To add insult to injury:

So much for inspiring your son to become a baseball player, bruh. Have fun going to his fencing matches in 5 years!

Matt’s love of writing was born during a sixth grade assembly when it was announced that his essay titled “Why Drugs Are Bad” had taken first prize in D.A.R.E.’s grade-wide contest. The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
