JETPACK at san francisco giants gameIf you don’t live on the West Coast, then you might not have found out about Matt Cain’s 14-strikeout perfect game last night against the Astros in San Francisco until…well, just now. And let me tell you, it was a game for the ages. The 22nd perfect game ever thrown was almost certainly one of the top 4 or 5 pitching performances in the history of the game.

So what could be better that witnessing Matt Cain’s incredible perfect game in person at AT&T Park last night?

How about witnessing Matt Cain’s 14-strikeout perfect game while hovering over McCovey Cove with a jetpack?

Yeah, that’s right. During Cain’s perfect pitching performance last night, the Comcast SportsNet TV crew spotted a guy using a very unique mode of transportation to zip around McCovey Cove. Check out the video for yourself:

What you just saw there was a man using the FlyBoard by Zapata Racing. It was invented by a “water sports enthusiast” and uses powerful water jets to propel you under, across, or over a body of water. Notice the tube going down into the water behind Iron Man there? That runs to the engine, which follows you along like a wave runner.

Want one, yet?

This was probably just a little publicity stunt by the folks who make this things. And man, they sure picked the right night to get noticed!
