I’m a big believer in karma. What goes around, comes around kind of stuff.
There was a great example of it last night when the Cleveland Indians took on the Detroit Tigers in nationally televised primetime baseball on ESPN.
In between innings and after warming up, Indians shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera launched a ball into the outfield stands at Progressive Field. Looking incredibly eager to get his hands on a piece of Indians history, a fan jumped up and ran across his row (in front of at least five other spectators like a total asshole), and put his hands up to catch the ball.
It drilled him square in the schnoz, deservedly.
That’s the kind of karma that happens when you wear cargo shorts and act like an idiot. Apparently, he didn’t even get the ball. Good.
Hey, maybe he should do this every game. I mean, if karma was in full swing, technically he did take one for his team, and the Indians went on to win in spectacular walk-off fashion in the 10th on Michael Brantley’s first career walk-off home run, so something has to be going on, right?
He’ll be an All-Star on ESPN in no time if he can do this on the regular and propel the Tribe to a winning streak they so dearly need–they’re 9.5 games back in the AL Central.
