Maybe if he was a YANKEE it would have been OK to hit him.
#44 Not exactly. This can happen at speeds below the sound barrier and it is not a physical representation of the sound barrier itself or a sonic boom. What you are seeing is a Vapor Cone, also known as a shock collar or shock egg, which is a visible cloud of condensation which can sometimes form around an aircraft. The vapor cone is thought to be created by what is called a Prandtl-Glauert Singularity. The phenomenon is frequently encountered at high-subsonic Mach numbers (Mach 0.85 to Mach 1), but can also occur in lower-speed conditions, such as high-g maneuvers by fighter aircraft. The cloud is caused by extremely low pressure in an "expansion region" of the airflow around the aircraft, usually in relatively humid atmospheric conditions. In addition to this, scientists have a theory that vapor cones form whenever a layer of water droplets gets trapped between two high-pressure surfaces of air. In humid conditions, condensation can gather in the trough between two crests of the sound waves produced by the jet. This effect does not necessarily coincide with the breaking of the sound barrier, although it can. - Borrowed some of this from Wikipedia.
Instead of slugging that 3rd baseman (presumably from the visiting team) reaching into stands to catch the foul ball, why didn't that fan just do a Steve Bartman, reach up and knock the ball out of the infielder's grasp?

#6 ok I don't see anything odd... omg, wtf?!?!!
Needed a good laugh. Comments with the pictures made some really funny.
Can't Talk! Bike is chasing me!
Totally insane & funny !!!!
I took a picture of my cousin on the back porch, and didn't realize that the way he was standing made it look like he had deer antlers growing out of his head because the antlers were hanging on the wall behind him.
