A foul ball landed in this A's fan's beer, and he chugged it anyway

If you find yourself at a ballgame and see a baseball headed your way, what would you do? Depending on what you have in your hands preoccupying you (such as a full tray of concession stand fare, which can lead to disaster) from the chance to snag a foul, different things can happen. 
In the second inning of Sunday's Twins-A's game at the Oakland Coliseum, Bruce Maxwell slapped a Bartolo Colon pitch into the seats behind home plate. The ball wound up in one fan's fresh cup of beer, whether caught or as the result of a ricochet situation, so he just picked up the cup, consumed the beer and removed his suds-soaked prize afterward. 

Nothing like a refreshing beverage at the ballpark.
