This trending clip shows St. Louis Cardinals first baseman Matt Adams giving a little glove shove to a Cincinnati Reds fan who caught an up-for-grabs foul ball. The reaction and analysis overblows the incident, surprising in this time of measured, thoughtful commentary delivered through restricted media channels.
What’s the big deal? Adams gets mildly frustrated and taps the guy with his glove. The guy gets the satisfaction of both catching the foul ball and becoming a two-day celebrity by flipping Adams off. Big deal, play ball.
But we’re overlooking the best part: Watch the girl next to bird fan prove that Cincinnati fans are class squared by calling Adams a “pussy.” Ah, I love when the spring winds signal the return of our beloved national pastime.
