Das Boot

This Yankees fan chugging beer out of his walking boot is patient zero of the next pandemic

The New York Yankees had a good weekend. Heading into Saturday, they were 0-7 against the Red Sox in 2021 and a whopping nine games back in the AL East. 48 hours and two nationally televised dubyas later and, well, now they’re 2-7 against their arch rivals and just seven games back. That’s how math works, right?

Needless to say, there’s still a long way to go but there was there was plenty to celebrate in the Bronx this weekend, and celebrate Yanks fans did, specifically this brave Bleacher Creature, who could be seen using his own walking boot as a Das Boot on Sunday. Bottom’s up.

So yeah, that’s going to get a big yikes from us, dawg. We’re just wrapping up one pandemic, and this dude is out here trying to start another. I mean, hasn’t he ever read a comic book? Super Villains are created from way tamer biohazardous material than this every single day. In fact, the only real advantage to chugging a beer out of your own nasty foot cast is that the boot juice might give the Bud Light some flavor, and, like, just order a better beer?

But hey, we’re not here to judge, only to rubberneck like commuters watching a fist fight on the 4 train. Seven games back, baby. We can’t wait to see what the Pinstripe Platoon will do when they get five.
