So some of you might have seen the video of the infamous pizza-throwing incident at Fenway Park yesterday, but if you haven't — and you haven't heard Jerry Remy and Co's hilarious commentary on NESN — it's above. The NESN announcers didn't have the ability to talk to the fans, though, so The Boston Herald takes care of that. It's ultimately a tale of fans shit-talking each other and one beleaguered Boston girlfriend just trying to keep the peace while her drunken Red Sox boyfriend wants to fight. Boston ladies ... this is pretty much what every day is like, right?
Basically, the guy who missed the ball and received the pizza toss had, earlier in the game, been mocking the pizza tosser for eating a pizza in the stands. So when he missed the foul ball, all was fair game.
"They had been giving us shit about it," Madore said. "Next thing I know, there's a fly ball to left field and it goes foul and my buddy says, 'You want some pizza now?' And he hits him right in the face. Hey, the guy wasn't paying attention. When you're in the stands you've got to be ready for anything - a foul ball, a flying slice of pizza, everything."
Absolutely! It's Patriots Day in Boston!
