Painful Sports Video: Met’s Fan Falls Like It’s the World Cup

Either this guy is really drunk, or he spent some time earlier this summer watching soccer players at the World Cup hit the ground with the slightest amount of contact.

In this case, the dude in the white shirt and white ball cap barely brushes the arm of the guy in the striped shirt and immediately slams into the concourse floor. Where’s the yellow card, ref?

We’ve watched the video now more than 40 times in slow motion, with enhanced digital video and have come to one conclusion: they had a wire attached to his right foot and pulled it out from under him, just liked they used to do to horses to make them fall in old Hollywood westerns. See, it looks like he just falls like a moron, but really it was an elaborate stunt.
