When a ball goes flying of a players bat into the stands, anything can happen. You could see a dad holding a baby make a great catch, or a bullpen pitcher get hit in the face. Well during last night’s Angels – White Sox game, a fan attempted to catch a foul ball with his beer which is a becoming a very popular thing to do. Instead of an awesome moment where the ball landed in his cup and he was left chugging like an awesome bro, his beer exploded, showering everyone around him. This is why you probably shouldn’t try to catch a baseball with a $9 Coors Lite.
We all dream of being a celebrity or a professional athlete. Wether its for the money, the lifestyle, the glitz and glamour, or for free beer! All you have to do is merely mention that you have an affinity for a particular brand — in this case, Shane Battier’s noted pregame ritual of drinking a Bud Light — and someone will eventually show up at your doorstep with 18 pallets of beer. Its a tough life, but somebody’s got to do it.
If your wondering, Shane Battier just got 26,400 cans of beer for free.
Brad Keselowski, the kid who stole the show at the season-opening Daytona 500 ended the year under the biggest spotlight of them all Sunday, beating five-time champion Jimmie Johnson to deliver the first Sprint Cup championship to Penske Racing.
“Always, throughout my whole life I’ve been told I’m not big enough, not fast enough, not strong enough and I don’t have what it takes,” Keselowski said from the championship stage. “I’ve used that as a chip on my shoulder to carry me through my whole career. It took until this year for me to realize that that was right, man, they were right.
“I’m not big enough, fast enough, strong enough. No person is. Only a team can do that.”
So, with the Penske organization behind him, he delivered a trophy that had eluded “The Captain” since his 1972 NASCAR debut. Although his motorsports organization is considered the gold standard of open-wheel racing — 15 Indianapolis 500 wins — and his empire has made Penske one of the most successful businessmen in America, his NASCAR team has always been just average.
After the race Brad Keselowski joined “SportsCenter” to talk about capturing his first Sprint Cup title, and with a “Beer-fest” mug full of beer, Brad enjoyed his victory and buzz.
