This Mariners fan missed catching not one, but two home run balls

You don't really get do-overs in real life. That's why we were kind of sad for a fan who, in the fifth inning of the Mariners' 5-3 victory over the Orioles on Thursday, let Seth Smith's home run ball slip away from him.

After all, how often will you be sitting in the exact spot a home run is hit? What are the odds it'll ever happen again? That guy probably missed the only chance he'll ever have in his life to -- oh, wait, Hyun Soo Kim hit another homer to him in the seventh? And he missed that one too?


OK, guy, the universe tried to help you out. You have only yourself to blame for letting that second one go.
