A Braves beer vendor was rudely interrupted by a foul ball landing right in his bucket

Being a ballpark vendor requires a lot: dedication, passion, remarkable balance, the ability to rhyme on command. But most of all, it demands focus. Your office is a baseball game, after all, and you need to be ready for anything at any time -- from a fan asking for a beer two aisles down to a mascot making the rounds to, as one Braves vendor found out during Atlanta's 9-5 loss to the Phillies on Saturday, a Freddy Galvis foul ball:


The stoicism, the bemused glance down that says, "Come on, really?" the fortitude to just pick up and start selling cold beverages to people in need -- this is a vendor who's seen it all before.
