A Giants fan made a nice one-handed catch while not losing his nachos

(Chesterton, Eric)

Life often and unexpectedly presents us with difficult choices where we are forced to choose between two things we love. Do we want to order tacos or a burger? Do you go to happy hour with one group of coworkers or play in a rec-league softball game with another? Do I catch that foul ball coming my way or hold onto these tasty nachos I've been enjoying for the last inning?
Regarding that last case study in decision-making, a Giants fan offered a third possible course of action when Ian Desmond fouled a ball his way in the fifth inning of Sunday's game against the Rockies. You can take home a souvenir and hang onto your tasty treat:

Sure, it looks like he may have lost a chip or two while extending for the catch, but that seems like more than a fair trade for catching a foul ball.
