A guy will make up just about anything to get outta hot water with his lady. Take this dude, Bo, who attempts to explain how he ended up two seats away as his chick was nailed by a foul ball at last night’s Astros game:
Lost it in the lights. Right. But hang on a minute. Watch the video again. I’m not so sure he didn’t lose it in the lights.
Our first front-side view of the incident comes at the 17 second mark. Watch Bo stand firm at :17, :18, even :19, where it is clearly visible that his arms are extended in a waiting to receive position. For a solid 2 ½ seconds of slow motion tape, Bo appears confident and ready to snatch that line drive out of thin air. It isn’t until the 20 second mark that he flinches. And note that it is in body alone that he flinches – his arms remain extended in the direction of the arriving sphere.
Now rewind to :13. Immediately, Bo invokes the “lost it in the lights” defense. The desperate cover of a quick thinking escape artist? I don’t think I’d give Bo that much credit.
I’m with you on this one, Bo. Suck it up Sara.
