Earlier today, in (I think) the sixth inning of the Astros-Rockies baseball game, Houston outfielder Jason Lane caught a fly ball for out number two. Unfortunately, he thought it was out number three and causually tossed the ball into the stands as a souvenier for a fan. Man, the look on his face when he turned around and slowly realized that he’d miscounted the outs… :eek: :smack: One run would have scored anyway on the sac fly, but Lane’s brain fart did allow another run to score to lessen the Astros’ lead to 4-2. And it opened the door for the Rockies to pull ahead. The Astros ended up winning anyway, but man… I’ve never seen a pro baseball player make such a purely mental (rather than physical) easy mistake like that.
That’s one of the few times I’ve heard someone booed by his team’s own fans and thought that he deserved it instead of thinking that the fans were just being classless.
