A giant flock of seagulls descended upon a fan in Oakland, threatened to carry her away forever

This fan, during Sunday's Mariners-A's game, was a good fan. She stuck it out for her team's tough 11-1 loss in the upper deck -- staying until the final outs late into the Oakland afternoon. As a reward, a giant flock of seagulls descended upon the area and threatened to carry her off to their seagull kingdom -- where garbage hangs from the sky and this song plays on endless repeat. 

It's happened before.

Fortunately, she was able to keep them at bay with her trusty A's umbrella. Another victory for baseball fans in our neverending battle with these menacing creatures.
