棒球和籃球

亞錦賽之後和朋友閒聊,他說唯一的感想就是台灣可以不需要再發展籃球了,這個時候居然還有某某人說要開籃球國是會議,要弄個幾億元的預算來振興籃球。

也大約是同一時刻,桃園棒球場的這個老兄,因為眼中有棒球、心中無女兒,竟然鬧上了全球新聞。我查了一下,各國主要通訊社都發稿了,幾乎每一個新聞網站、運動網站都登了這則笑談。

你自己看看,這個video在Youtube上的點閱數都已經超過150萬了,連帶他老婆帶有殺氣的眼神都被寫成piercing look和stare of death了,看來台灣棒球的魔力和話題性還是遠遠高於籃球啊!

至於亞錦賽的牢騷,下次再說好了。

Taiwan fan drops toddler, bungles foul ball catch
TAIPEI, Taiwan (AP) — A Taiwanese baseball fan got himself in hot water with his wife when he dropped their young daughter into the stadium seats in front of him in a bungled attempt to catch a foul ball during a televised game.

The man, identified by his surname, Bai, reached for the foul pop from his upper deck seat while holding the toddler in one arm during last week’s game between the Brother Elephants and the Lamigo Monkeys at the Taoyuan Baseball Stadium in suburban Taipei.

The ball bounded off Bai’s other arm as he lurched forward and let go of his child.

“I was going to catch the ball using one hand,” he explained later. “But I ended up lifting both hands and dropped my daughter.”

The girl was not badly hurt, but her mother clearly was not amused, as shown in TV coverage of the game that has generated tens of thousands of clicks online.

She shot her husband a piercing look of anger and scolded him. Afterward, she made it clear to reporters that he’d be in trouble for a while.

“I am still upset at him because I think he wanted to catch the ball so badly that he dropped his own daughter!” she said.
