It cost 12 dollars for a beer at The Rogers Center and this guy was drunk as you can get before you start regretting it. I’m talking Loaded.
Every batter from the opposing team (in this case the New York Yankees) that came to the plate he had to yell at and tell them that they sucked. Except when his hero’s were at bat (in this case the Toronto Blue Jays) he would yell and tell them to hit a home run baby!
 
The real interesting part of this whole situation was that he and myself were sitting in the outfield on the upper, (in this case third) deck of a Major league baseball park. Formerly known as the Sky Dome. Over 450 feet from home plate. With my understanding of sound physics. There was 0 to .3% chance that a player on the field would even be able to hear the slightest sound coming from his mouth due to sound dispersion of such a vast amount. Along with the low hum of the crowd noise, music being played and the announcer over the PA system. Regardless and un-phased by physics this guy proceeded to yell at every single Yankee player, to make sure that they knew of his professional unbiased MLB critique of their performance.
 
This shot was taken on my Yashica FX-D – 50mm SLR. He really didn’t notice me pointing the camera at him so I took my time and made sure I took a photo of him screaming full boar while attempting to not drop his beer over the edge.

Out For A Rip.

I know everyone makes fun of scooter kids at skate parks, but I couldn’t help but snap this shot of this guy zipping past me on the table top. – It was his first time on a scooter and potentially in a skatepark. But something had come over him, Like he realized anything was possible. – It felt as though, He had watched people in skate parks do tricks and ride up and down on ramps, but felt as though, It was a long shot for him to ever be able to do that. – Until, he jumped on the scooter and became invincible…. So it seemed.

You know that feeling you get when you feel like you have the power to change the world?

This guy.
