Back in 2011 I was sitting in the pavilion with my friend Marianne and my boy Hunter watching a Rockies/Dodgers game. A few feet behind us was a drunk Rockies fan who was endlessly heckling Tony Gywnn Jr.
I shot some video and posted it because I was impressed with the way Tony handled himself plus I was laughing so hard I was almost crying. By the end of this game we had all had enough of the heckler (who sounded like Gilbert Godfried), screaming in our ears.
Here’s a link to the blog entry I wrote about it…Tony Takes the Abuse…Then Lets Loose.
Yesterday my YouTube account came to life with non-stop emails and comments on this video. This video has received over 314,000 hits so far.
Someone posted my video on Reddit
Go figure? Anyways, here’s the video:
Click HERE to read write-up of the game almost two years ago.
The article mentions how Tony made the game ending catch off of Charlie Blackmon. I remember that catch, it was impressive. What was even more impressive is after he caught the ball he turned around, smiled, tipped his cap to the heckler and strutted off the field. The write-up even mentions the heckler..Very cool!
It seems almost every sports blog and funny video website in the country has picked up this video. I saw the video on the MLB fan cave and in Yahoo Canada EH!
What kind of sucks is not one of them mentions the guy who filmed it or my blog the Rockpile Rant.
I’m “D” the Ranter…Stay away from me Yo!.. I’m Viral :)
