Idiot with Cell Phone Becomes Hero in Wild Walk-Off Win


A man stands,
one hand waving
to someone, somewhere
other hand to ear, cell phone
“see me in the stands,
that’s me waving!”

A woman stands,
one hand waving
to someone, somewhere
other hand to ear, cell phone
“see me in the stands,
that’s me waving!”

A man stands,
waving to someone, somewhere
“see me waving?”

Another man stands, takes cell phone,
throws from stands to first base

Jason Giambi picks up phone,
puts to ear, “who is this?”
“It’s Freddy, I’m in the stands,
see me waving my hand?”

Wright hits a line-drive,
past Giambi,
two runs score, Mets win!
