Here at LBS, we’ve spent a decent amount of time over the past month or two ragging on Philadelphia Phillies Fans. It’s not that we have anything against them, their team, or their city for that matter, they just tend to get bagged doing more bonehead things than other fans. If you run onto the field and security Tasers you, you’re going to get made fun of. If you throw up on a little girl on purpose, you’re a scumbag and you’re also going to get made fun of. If you allow your young child to drink a beer and get caught on camera doing it, you’re going to be called out. And if you fall directly on your face on national televsion, you’re probably going to be humiliated by the entire sports blog universe.
However, if you make a nice gesture and happen to be caught on national television doing it, we aren’t afraid to give you a pat on the back. This fan deserves one. Check out the video of a Phillies fan giving a little kid a foul ball, courtesy of Bob’s Blitz via Out of Bounds:
This guy made a pretty strong effort to get to that ball and I don’t think anyone would have blamed him for keeping it. Instead, he decided to make some young kid’s day. Good for him. There’s hope for Phillies fans after all.
