Prince Fielder’s Son Was Mistaken For A Girl By An A’s Fan (Video)
Here’s a tip for all you drunken sports fans out there: if you’re going to harass the family of one of the opposing team’s superstar players, make sure you don’t confuse his son for a little girl. It won’t go over well.
Why do I bring this up? Because at Game 5 of the American League Division Series between the Oakland A’s and Detroit Tigers in Oakland last Thursday, an obviously inebriated Oakland fan got a serious tonge-lashing from the wife of Detroit first baseman Prince Fielder when he mistook their long-haired son for a little girl.
Of course, you might be wondering why said inebriated A’s fan was talking to Prince Fielder’s family at all. Well, it seems that the guy was taking issue with the fact that the little Fielder boy was cheering too enthusiastically for his dad, because after he get’s chewed out by mom and the others in Fielder’s party, he shouts back in a drunken stutter, “let her ch—let him cheer, let him cheer.”
Take a look:
To the idiot A’s fan’s credit, he doesn’t seem to be particularly abusive or anything. In Philadelphia one time some drunken idiot intentionally vomited on an off duty cop and his daughter. So, you know, it could have been worse. But still, as a rule of thumb, it’s best to simply avoid targeting children with heckling, cause everyone’s gonna think you’re a douche.
