She should get together with the people who had their 2 houses 20 miles apart hit by lighting at the same time, head to Vegas, and double down. There has got to be some rule about two people with bad luck cancelling each other out.

Either that or it would create the worst luck known to mankind, ultimately bringing down civilization as we know it.

I'm willing to risk it.

Well, some ladies just like balls flying at their head.

I chuckle.... that's good stuff.

Her boyfreind: "Sure, you'll take two balls to the face from the frickin Cardinals, but you still won't let me tea-bag you? What a crock."

one would think that after the first foul, she might start paying attention to her surroundings. Bad look for her would have been exceedingly good luck for the young fan watching the game with his outfielder's glove on.

I'd hit it!

/sorry, had to say it.

Twice!

What's really weird is I can't find this story anywhere on STL Today, but it shows up in an Iowa newspaper.
 
2004-07-07 01:25:45 PM  
How about start watching the damn game.

Hey EatHam, isn't this the same way you died?
 
2004-07-07 01:37:32 PM  
EatHam was killed by zombies- that's how he became one.

Thanks, a_e, I had forgotten that.

Remember kids, in the event that EatHam is ever attacked by zombies again, call these people.

show me, I looked for a print article on this all over the place yesterday. And I had a funnier headline.
 
2004-07-07 02:54:00 PM  
EYEWITNESS REPORT:

i looked all over for this story, because i was at the game sitting along the first base line sunday in the third deck. this woman was in the second or third row about thirty feet past the end of the dugout. these were not gentle foul balls either, they were both screamers, the kind that leave the end of the bat and you hear "oooh" and look down to see who it struck. and everybody around me said "wow, same lady! what are the odds?"

so, this happens the second time, and i turn to my girlfriend and say, "she really should pay more attention to the game," and said gf really lets me have it for my callousness.

(i know, i'll bet i can't react that fast either)

She shoulda listened the first time!
 
2004-07-07 04:53:19 PM  
Did she get to keep both the balls?
 
2004-07-07 05:43:24 PM  
Props to the headline. What I want to know, though, is if they make 5 gallon urns. Marlon would need it.

yes, until she gets them removed from the part of her skull in which they were lodged.

I just had the same conversation with my wife last week. She didn't want to sit someplace where the ball could hit her. I suggested she could sit anywhere provided she watched the game. BZZT! WRONG ANSWER!

/should have known that in advance
 
2004-07-07 05:51:04 PM  
She'd better stay away from baseball because the third times a charm.
 
2004-07-07 05:53:50 PM  
At least she chalks it up to bad luck, and is not being a baby and wanting to sue someone.

/finally 5...I am going home

And while baseball is clearly a more dangerous spectator sport I have to watch hockey through a screen door because a freak accident with a little girl.

More proof that God's a Cubs fan.
 
2004-07-07 05:56:15 PM  
I actually saw this happen once at a Twins game. A lady got hit and left with the medical personnel. She came back a few innings later and hadn't been in her seat more than 10 minutes before she got hit again. She didn't come back after that.

1 Foul ball shame on you. 2 Foul balls shame on me.

She should get together with the people who had their 2 houses 20 miles apart hit by lighting at the same time, head to Vegas, and double down. There has got to be some rule about two people with bad luck cancelling each other out.

Or, maybe the synergistic effects will result in Vegas getting accidentally nuked by a malfunctioning ICBM.

Either way... a win/win situation!

"There's an old saying in Tennessee -- I know it's in Texas, probably in Tennessee...that says, hit me with a foul once, shame on...shame on you. hit me with a foul...you can't get hit with a foul again."

Youda man!

Now watch this drive.

Early in the game, a foul ball struck Denoyer in the neck. Then in the ninth inning, Seattle's Scott Spiezio hit a foul that also struck Denoyer -- this time in the head.

Two balls to the chin would be better.
 
2004-07-07 06:30:45 PM  
... also from the same show, in case no one remembers:

"A bird ran into my giant freak-head."
"What giant freak-head?"
"The one that sits atop my disproportionately puny body. I'm a walking candy apple!"

... this is how I picture Foul Ball Woman.
 
2004-07-07 06:32:22 PM  
Maybe I'm reaching here but I think if you watched the game, you could more easily avoid becoming a target.

I take my 7 yr boy to games and the first thing I say when we sit down is: "Watch the game or you could get hit"

He started saying it(in a mocking tone of course) along with me the second game we went to.

when people yelled fly ball she wasnt expecting that i bet
