Giants fan drops foul ball, gets called out on live TV

There is a valid argument to be made against bringing your glove to a baseball game. This fan's failure to catch a foul ball, however, is a pretty good counter to said argument.

The ball ricochets directly into the fan's hands, setting him up perfectly for a decent snare. But, the barehanded grab proved to be too much to ask, and the souvenir fell to a lower level of seating.

If he had worn a glove, it's a safe bet that he'd not only have caught the ball, but also spared himself the ridicule of the broadcast team who, evoking the spirit of Marlon Brando, quipped, "This guy could've been somebody!"
