Wimbledon Attendee Struggles to Put on Poncho

Andrew Gould@AndrewGould4Featured ColumnistJuly 11, 2017

Rain has dampened Tuesday's Wimbledon action at the All England Club, both on the courts and in the stands, as one fan was seen fighting valiantly with a stubborn poncho.

According to BBC.com's Tom Rostance and Saj Chowdhury, the mishap occurred during Jamie Murray and Martina Hingis' mixed-doubles victory over Roman Jebavy and Lucie Hradecka. The fan tried to escape the outerwear's trap but somehow got both arms and head stuck. These struggles continued even after assistance was offered.

Don't feel bad. Ponchos are tough to figure out. Just ask George W. Bush.

And yes, keeping the cameras rolling and laughing at the incident probably was cruel. As is sharing the video and continuing to laugh.
