Watch As Lightning Pulverizes A Minor League Team’s Scoreboard

// you’re anything like me, you might have a fear of being struck by lightning at some point in your life.

Now, I’m not saying that it’s possible or even probable to happen, but for as much as run around in the rain during a thunderstorm, I’m at least increasing my chances of getting nailed by a high-voltage bolt.

So, with that fear out of the way, you can probably tell by the title of this article that I was pretty fucking stoked to not be in the stadium of the Pensacola Blue Wahoos yesterday, as a giant lightning bolt nailed the team’s scoreboard, causing it to, obviously, get seriously fucked up.

Thanks to the power of cell phones, we’re able to see just how terrifying it was for all those who were in the press box, proving that Mother Nature really likes to freak us all out sometimes.


Maybe even crazier than the lightning itself is that the weather took a complete 180-turn and actually turned into a sunny day, with the Wahoos coming away with a 4-1 victory—even if the scoreboard didn’t actually read it.

Talk about a fucking twilight zone sort of feel to a day, huh?
