Dodgers: Justin Turner’s home run covers fan in cheese after epic nacho explosion
The Los Angeles Dodgers took home another victory on Wednesday night when they defeated the Colorado Rockies, but that was hardly the postgame story.
How good does it feel to have fans back in the stands?
You could only enjoy cardboard cutouts getting their heads taken off by line drives and fly balls for so long.
Now, we’ve got the real thing.
In the bottom of the third inning, Justin Turner took an offering from Jon Gray deep to left-center field and a lucky fan was sitting right up against the wall, waiting for Turner’s blast to fall right into his lap.
Instead, the ball landed directly in the man’s nachos, creating a cheese explosion, a viral moment, and fifteen minutes of fame.
What was the guy to do? He didn’t want to reach over the wall and cause controversy, so he waited as best he could for the ball to carry further his way. Unfortunately, his nachos were right in the landing spot, and there simply wasn’t enough time to react. Just like that, he became the ballpark meal.
No, seriously, some dude dipped a chip of his own in the cheese on his sweatshirt!
Turner was at least generous enough to send a new order of nachos this fan’s way. That’s the least the slugger could’ve done after making him look like he’d gotten stuck with a cheese plasma grenade.
Also, the broadcast team brought Nacho Guy two new sweatshirts from the Dodger Stadium store so he could change out of his greasy clothes.
Man, you really don’t realize how much cheese is on your nachos until something like this happens. It’s like when your pen first explodes and you see some ink on your hand, then you look around a little bit more and discover it’s all over your arms, pants and face.
We salute Nacho Guy for this delightful moment after being without fans at the ballpark for so long. Now can somebody hit a ball into fan’s full beer so they can chug it on the big screen? That’s gotta be next on the docket.
