As usual, I’m late to the party on this one. But hey, at least I was actually invited this time. Which is nice.
On Saturday night at Shea Stadium, I was sitting in my usual seat in the Mezzanine along the first base line when I and others around me noticed a commotion coming from the Field Level below me. And what was unfolding was an accomplishment of epic proportions – both in degree of difficulty and inanity.
A fan who had passed out drunk in his seat had four cups stacked on his head, and those around him were attempting to build the Tower of Babel upon his dome. As each cup was successfully added, the entire stadium – from the Field Level to the Upper Deck – cheered as if Carlos Delgado had yet again cracked one 450 feet. Luckily, one attendee was able to film the achievement unfolding before his eyes (he also happened to be a classmate of mine from high school). So enjoy. And Martin, we thank you:
