You know how we know the summer doldrums have set in? Because today The Internet can't seem to get over this little kid who made a pouty face over not getting a foul ball at the Giants-Dodgers game. Writes Sports Grid, "Young Giants fan proves pouting is the key to getting what you want in life." Writes Deadspin, "Hey, Kids: If you sulk on TV, the Giants PR team will reward you." Writes Busted Coverage, "At least your Dad didn't die trying to get you that ball." Surely somewhere they're b*tching online about how this incident is another unforunate sign of the "pussifcation of the America" or something along those lines.
Boy oh boy, this heat wave really has everyone's panties in a twist today! Seems like a lot of split milk over nothing. The Internet's whipping boy is like what, four or five? What four or five year old kid doesn't want to take home a ball at a baseball game? As we see it, the Bay Area Comcast Sports Net announcers were the culprits who kept bringing attention to him, so there's the witch you can hunt with all that misplaced blog-rant anger.
