Minnesota Twins first baseman Chris Parmelee got up close and personal with one of the camera operators at Target Field last night, flipping over a flimsy metal railing and into the stadium’s camera pit to make a highlight-reel catch in the eighth inning of his team’s 4-1 win over the Milwaukee Brewers.
The catch itself is great, and it’s a small miracle Parmelee wasn’t injured on the play, but there’s plenty more to like about this clip if you watch closely.
First, there’s this dude, who absolutely cannot believe what he just saw. Not since 1991 has he been so excited about a year!
But even better is the guy behind him, who either shaved his face in utter darkness or is taking a run at NFL defensive tackle Antonio Garay for the title of douchiest beard on a fat dude in America. Which is it, background guy?!
