Don't Be a Freddy - Part 2

Last night at the Ranger's game we had a few notable events occur outside the actual game on the field. One was the fan falling from the upper deck after trying to lean over a railing to catch a foul ball. Luckily everyone seems to be ok, both the guy who fell and those upon whom he landed.

The other incident is where we find Freddy. The video is below. Don't be this guy. If a foul ball or home run ball lands within your wingspan, feel free to reach out and try to haul it in. If you need to simulate a rugby scrum to get a ball and you're over, say, ten years old, stay in your seat. The announcers say the guy did end up giving the kid the ball, but it's still inexcusable.


  1. If you use Internet Explorer it won't load unless you use the 32 bit, not 64.

  2. Let me explain this a little bit more, as I don't want to come across as unsympathetic to your plight. Posting videos on Blogger (or anywhere from what I can tell) has run into a bit of a snag with Microsoft's recent edition of Internet Explorer. I use Mozilla, but I have IE and I use it to make sure the blog looks ok in both.

    That said...there is a known issue with the 64 bit IE and how it displays video (I think it has something to do with Flash players, but don't quote me on that.) We have been hesitant to post videos because of this.

    I tried to run ANY video from YouTube with my 64 bit IE and none work. I switched to the 32 bit and everything is fine. The solution I mentioned above is explained on Adobe's website here:

    Hope this helps.
