Unathletic, awkward white people saved from flying bat

Flying bat doesnt spill beer
The all too common tragedy known as Foul Ball Fail has been well documented on this site over the past couple of years.  It appears a remedy will not be arriving any time soon, as evidenced by the woman in the red hat (top center) who encapsulates flying-object-fear so well. 

Thankfully, in this instance, an alert, non-awkward non-white dude was seated near the flying bat and deftly caught said bat while not spilling his beer.

The lesson?  If you're seated near a large group of white people at a baseball game, move.

    Would just like to point out that though the link is via Seattle Times, that — for once — this early-season display of awkward whiteness took place at a Braves-Toronto game.

    We M’s fans will show you how to white it up come April.

    Not only is that a white cross-section, it is an absolutely awful whyyyte cross-section! Great catch Hernia!

    Also Hernia if you look more closely, it is the black guy who saved the day not the “non-awkward white dude.”

    Good call on the lady in the red hat Hernia as well as Jason on the Crypt Keeper/Al Davis look-a-like.

    Some other revealing notables:

    1) In the lower left corner the fat man does not appear “white” given that he is wearing an ugly Mexico jersey, but what kind of a douchebag would wear any given soccer jersey to a baseball game? The fact that the white people there would go out of their way to tolerate such attire in the name of political correctness is shameful.

    2) Check the ninnie in the lilac (a white word!) shirt in the lower center. She apparently never learned how to match clothes, and some idiot is either stuck with her for life or faces an expensive divorce.

    3) Check the two whyyyte dudes to the center left who offer greater embarrassment given also their youth. One missed the bat and the other guy threw up his foot wearing a flip-flop. The whyyyte dude in the center takes the cake and how I wish the saviour just let the bat clobber him.
    4) The only potential “white redemption” sits in the upper right, but more than likely given his appearance with that sloppy pube beard, he’s just stoned as well and just thinks it’s all so cool.
