Red Sox fans struggle valiantly in bid for foul ball

main image

Normally in this space, we highlight the fans who show off superb skill and panache when making plays on foul balls. The ones who display daring and valor to come away with a souvenir. 

Tonight, we honor a different kind of fan. A fan who wants it just as badly, but like the Buffalo Bills of the early '90s, come up a little short. 

Foul ball

Like Sisyphus who must roll a boulder up a mountain for all eternity, the men in this gif will be forever trapped in a loop of despair. Pushing and stretching their limbs as far as they can go, they are tragically forced to watch the ball roll out of their reach. Except for that last guy. His story's not so bad. 

As Albert Camus once said, "The struggle itself toward the heights is enough to fill a man's heart. One must imagine Sisyphus happy." He then added, "But seriously, guys. It's just a ball. You can buy one in the gift shop."
