GTFO: These A**hole Fans Ruin Baseball Games

There aren’t many better ways to spend your summer afternoons than at a baseball game rooting for your favorite team while guzzling on a michelada. Mucho chile por favor! But there’s always a fan who wants to hinder your enjoyment, like these unavoidable, unmannerly fans…

Those Who Start the Wave – at the MOST Crucial Time

Let’s start off with the fan I hate the most. It’s the bottom of the ninth and my Dodgers are trying to rally. Suddenly some prick starts demanding we do the wave. I try to ignore the idiotic request, but still he gets half the section to stand for a half-hearted wave while I miss the most important play of the game.

The Seat Stealers

It’s always awkward to deal with these fans. You have to politely tell them – without making them feel stupid – they’ve made a “mistake.” But they’re always in denial and suddenly you’re arguing with these morons on who’s right and wrong. The only thing left to do is call an usher like they’re your elementary teacher to resolve the matter while the rest of your party stands uncomfortably munching on nachos.

The Ones Who Can’t Hold It In

There’s one in every row. This is the fan who makes the entire row get up every inning because he or she can’t control his or her bladder. They step on your shoes and spill beer on you on the way back. This person shouldn’t be allowed to drink if he’s not potty trained, or at least do us the courtesy of purchasing an aisle seat.

Everyone hates these guys. They act like they chugged a bottle of Jack on their way to the game, but in reality just had a few Strawberitas – and just can’t hang. Then they buy a tall can at the ballgame and sip on it for seven innings and yell at the concession stands cashier because they stopped selling alcohol after the seventh inning. These bros spend the entire game making women uncomfortable cat-calling and shouting profanity at the outfielders.

The Obnoxious Opposing Team Fan

This loud-mouth is the cousin of the way-too-drunk punk. His mission is to get under the skin of every home team fan. He walks to his seat tugging on his jersey like he just scored the game-winning shot for his YMCA basketball team. No one pays attention to this clown so he cheers louder. Whenever his team scores he erupts like a maniac, and starts waving his hands like he’s Hulk Hogan. That’s when the beers and popcorn start flying at him and he has completed his mission.

Those Who Show Up Late and Leave Early

The good thing is you only have to deal with them from innings three to seven. They don’t talk to you or interact with you in any way, but their lack of appreciation for the game just rubs you the wrong way. Don’t get me started on how ticked off I get when they leave after the seventh-inning stretch during a 1-1 tie game.

The I’m-Only-Here-for-the-Gram Fan

These fans only tag along because it gives them a chance to hashtag away and update their Instagram feed. They constantly add to their 233 second Snapchat story. You’d think most of these fans would be women, but many men in tank tops and cargos are guilty of this ballpark crime.

The Fans Who Giggle Over Cute Players

They see a baseball player’s mug shot on the jumbotron and it’s love at first sight. They start using words like “OMG” and ask 21 questions about their new crush. Crushing on one player is fine, but when they start falling for every guy and all they care about is how their butts look in the uniforms that’s when it becomes annoying.

The Couples with Kiss Cam Dreams

Everyone loves the comedy the kiss cam brings; like the boyfriend who licks his girlfriend’s face or when the camera guy mistakes siblings for a couple. It’s funny at first, but then there’s the couple that locks eyes and make out like there’s no tomorrow. That’s when your girlfriend turns to you and asks “why don’t you ever kiss me like that?” All bad.

The Know-It-All Fan Who Knows Nothing

Someone shouts “Hey, take off that jersey. That guys sucks.” You try to ignore this d-bag, but he somehow sucks you into a conversation on why the player whose jersey you’re wearing stinks. He’ll call Clayton Kershaw “Clay Carshaw” and throw out inaccurate stats on why he’s overrated. Just walk away. You’ll never win this battle.

This scum bag ruins it for everybody. He – or she – will pick a fight over everything. You stepped on my shoes. Your team sucks. It’s a game, relax. Stay AWAY from these hotheads.

Dad Of Julio Urías Got A Tattoo Honoring His Son’s World Series Win

Parents always find new ways to be proud of their children and how to tell the world how proud they are. This includes Julio Urías’ father who recently unveiled his newest tattoo in honor of his World Series-winning son.

Julio Urías’ dad is showing off just how proud he is of his son.

Tattoo artist Andres Ortega Rojas posted photos on Instagram showing off the tattoo. Carlos Urías forever enshrined his sons victorious lunge after Game 6 against the Tampa Bay Rays while a tattoo on his left arm.

Rojas told TMZ that the tattoo took nine hours to complete and that is was Carlos’ first tattoo. The moment captured on Carlos’ arm is one that is etched into the brains of Dodgers fans. It was the first time the Dodger has won the World Series since 1988 ending a decades-long dry spell.

The tattoo is catching everyone’s attention.

People are loving the tribute made to his son with a tattoo. It being his first tattoo is even sweeter. We all know how much our parents are anti-tattoos so seeing this happen is extra touching. Julio is framed by the flags of the Commissioner’s Trophy in the tattoo marking what is clearly Carlos’ most proud moment.

The moment marks a culmination of a long journey to athletic stardom.

Julio first pitched for the Dodgers in 2015. The Mexican baseball player was called up to join the famed baseball team. Carlos and the family made a 13-hour road trip from the Mexican state of Sinaloa to Maryvale Park in Phoenix, Ariz. It was after that long trip that Carlos got to see Julio on the field pitching against the Milwaukee Brewers.

It just goes to show you that anything is possible and that, if you work towards your goals, they can come true.

New Lawsuit Alleges that Alex Rodriguez is Guilty of Embezzlement and Racketeering: ‘He is a serial cheater and liar’

New Lawsuit Alleges that Alex Rodriguez is Guilty of Embezzlement and Racketeering: ‘He is a serial cheater and liar’

It looks like scandal just can’t stay away from A-Rod. The former Yankees all-star is now facing controversy based off of the claims filed in a lawsuit by his former brother-in-law, Constantine Scurtis.

The lawsuit alleges that Rodriguez is a pathological liar and cheater who embezzled millions of dollars through shady real estate deals.

The lawsuit states: “Defendant Alex Rodriguez, a former Yankees baseball player, is a serial cheater and liar. After cheating on his wife, Cynthia, and lying about his affairs, Alex Rodriguez then lied to and cheated his brother in law in their real estate partnership.”

According to Scurtis, he and Rodriguez formed a real estate partnership around the beginning of A-Rod’s marriage to his sister, Cynthia. The initial deal was that the duo would leverage A-Rod’s star power to attract clients and sales and would get 95% of the profits. Scurtis would get the rest of the profits, including acquisition fees when applicable.

Scurtis says that A-Rod sold their joint company without his consent and without giving him any of the profits.

But per Scurtis, in 2008, around the time that Rodriguez’s marriage to his first wife dissolved, A-Rod abruptly booted Scurtis from the partnership. Scurtis alleges that, up until that point, Rodriguez had previously lied to him and assured him that nothing would change in their business dealings.

The lawsuit also alleges that Rodriguez committed various acts of fraud, including concocting a “scheme to profit off of the devastation wrought by Hurricane Ike.”

Hurricane Ike was a natural disaster that resulted in at least 195 deaths and billions of dollars in damage in 2008.

Scurtis says that Rodriguez committed insurance fraud, faking accounting records to claim that his properties sustained significantly more damage than they actually did.

The lawsuit alleges that A-Rod bribed an official who caught wind of the scheme to keep quiet.

“Through their racketeering,” the lawsuit said, “Rodriguez and his co-conspirators have caused Scurtis many millions of dollars in damages.”

Scurtis’s lawyer says that A-Rod will “face a jury on August 2, 2021, to answer claims that he and his co-conspirators engaged in a pattern of racketeering and embezzlement.”

“Scurtis never suspected that the tussle over the day-to-day operation of the business arising from his sister’s divorce would be followed by a systematic and fraudulent effort to eliminate Scurtis’s equity in the venture and strip him of the future financial rewards to which he was rightfully entitled,” says the lawsuit.

It should be noted that this is not the first time that Scurtis has brought a lawsuit against his ex-brother-in-law.

There seems to be no love lost between these two former business partners. Over the years, Scurtis has filed a multiple lawsuits against the Dominican ex-MVP, including a $100 million one in 2015 that included many of the same allegations. It is unclear how that situation ended, but judging by the newest lawsuit, Scurtis’s previous ones have not been successful.

As for A-Rod, he is hitting back at Scurtis’s claims, and filed a countersuit denying the accusations. We guess we’ll just keep our eyes peeled to see how this all turns out.
