A great white whale of modern athletics, the nacho ball is a myth that has been perpetrated by uncles and fathers across these great United States for decades
“Let me tell you something, son. Everyone remembers Jeffrey Maier’s catch in ’96, but it was your old man who caught Bernie Williams’ walkoff with a tray of Xochitl in one hand.”
Few—if any—people have ever actually caught a nacho ball, but I can confidently say now that the myth is real. I can confidently say that no one has ever caught a nacho ball with the panache an Oakland A’s fan demonstrated Wednesday night.
The people at Bro Bible saw this glory, and for that, we thank them.
Kaboom. Nacho ball.
This man didn’t miss a step—didn’t even interrupt his stride—while barehanding this ball with a plate full of filthy, delicious cheese and tortilla chips in hand. He takes two steps and shoots up like he’s doing the vert test at the NBA draft workouts and robs the guy in front of him.
If there was one thing this bro in the Oakland hoodie wasn’t considering when he went up to catch the ball, it was the possibility that he might be nacho-balled by a dude one-handing 1,300 hundred calories of sour cream and corn.
Also, it must be noted for the record, while the catch itself was spectacular, the best part might be how he struts around in a little square showing off the goods.
We are truly living in the Golden Age of fan catches, my friends. Earlier this week, a hero named “Super Bro” made a diving miracle catch at AT&T Park.
Don’t forget the Mariners bro legend, who caught a foul ball in his beer this April and chugged the brew with beer still in it.
Like I said, special times we’re living in everyone.
This A’s fan made being cheesy look easy
