Idaho Lets Man Sue Over Foul Ball Injury

Yeah, after reading the apparent facts, he probably won't (shouldn't) win. In a small park like that, if you aren't paying attention, you are to blame. I've schmoozed at baseball games before, and it is perfectly acceptable to be facing the plate while talking out of the side of your face. Safety first.

Idaho Lets Man Sue Over Foul Ball Injury

(I have no ideas about this case, so I could be totally wrong. The Yahoo story is silent as to the facts.)

What if he was in the second row, behind home plate, and the foul ball came through a pre-existing hole in the screen? I think a waiver wouldn't work in that situation.

If he's down the left field line, and flubbed the catch, probably not. But I think it depends on the situation. Which, I think, is what the Idaho Supreme Court is saying.

NFL Pick 'Em, Championship Round

A lot of people (including myself, apparently) hedging by having Brady with the most passing yards, and Atlanta as the defense giving up the fewest passing yards.
