Talk about a party foul.
A St. Louis Cardinals fan with an almost-full cup of delicious golden brew accidentally dropped his beer onto a group of baseball fans at Busch Stadium during Saturday's game against the Los Angeles Dodgers.
The fan seems to be meeting up with a friend after purchasing said beverage as the Redbirds move into the middle of the fourth inning. As he steps up to the upper-level railing, the drink slips through his grip, tumbling down onto a gangway and spilling on a group of fellow Cardinals fans.
The fall is perfectly, if peripherally, captured by FOX Sports cameras. The loose-fingered fan drops his suds just as the cameras pull back for a crowd shot along the first-base line.
This fan may not have had the physical dexterity to keep his drink in his hand, but he definitely has the mental dexterity to unhesitatingly whip around and head back to the concession stand for a new beer. That's what the sports world calls focus.
