CBS to chump: What kind of man lets his girlfriend get hit by a foul ball?

posted at 8:05 pm on August 12, 2010 by Allahpundit

I thought we’d been over this. Would a guy who didn’t know exactly what he was doing have a girlfriend this attractive? Alas, Ace co-blogger DrewM refuses to learn his lesson and insists that this dude can’t possibly be an alpha male, as he’s lamely been insisting that he lost the ball in the lights. But see, that’s the point: Only an alpha would have the nerve to float an excuse that feeble. In fact, it’s not even an excuse; he’s basically admitting that he stepped out of the way and relying on pure wink-wink “I’m so roguish, I’m really not even trying to defend this” charm to get away with it. Masterful.

Our hero and heroine are now broken up, alas (albeit not because of the foul ball), leading Drew to wonder whether she’ll soon have her own dating show. Could be, and doubtless the winner will be an alpha too. Free advice for Sara: If the next guy takes you to a ballgame, bring a glove.

Her loss…

Khun Joe on August 12, 2010 at 8:08 PM

The real question is which is the best proof of an Alpha male. Taking a date to a baseball game or taking a date out for time alone ?

In other words which place is he going to see a higher score ?

William Amos on August 12, 2010 at 8:10 PM

A liberal man, that’s who!

The only reason Harry knows what a man is supposed to do is cause his date took him to a ball game once.

UncleZeb on August 12, 2010 at 8:12 PM

Beta male = striking out with a beautiful GF because of foul balls.

William Amos on August 12, 2010 at 8:13 PM

Take her and cover her with yourself, moron.

He’s the best gutless wonder she will ever date I am sure!

It’s a little weird that a CBS guy (the cbs guy!) was telling someone how to act like a man.

That’s exactly what I was thinking. Betas want to show a girl how others get on base. Alphas just try to get on base.

Weight of Glory on August 12, 2010 at 8:18 PM

Why didn’t SHE catch the ball?

Yer out!!!!!!!

profitsbeard on August 12, 2010 at 8:20 PM

Worthless beta loser. An alpha would have taken the hit, even in the balls, and not flinched. Then he would have picked up the ball, held it up triumphantly, and accepted public oral sex from his girlfriend for his gallantry.

MadisonConservative on August 12, 2010 at 8:20 PM

If anyone on CBS should be telling people how to act like a man it should be Katie Couric.

Well, it’s not over, like, because of the ball…. it’s actually both balls. /giggle

He’s an alpha simply because his new found fame will garner him a bevy of new girlfriends. The beta males are the ones who wish they were able to catch that ball for Lady Guinevere.

ujorge on August 12, 2010 at 9:39 PM

He showed his Alpha-phobia when he didn’t hand over the ball to her while the cameras were on him at the ballpark. One of those guys who always hoped to catch a foul ball and never had and was damn sure not going to give this one up.

PatMac on August 12, 2010 at 9:50 PM

Wow. Gettin’ called a puss by HARRY SMITH!!!

How low can you go?

Any male who would duck an oncoming baseball and let his GF get hit is swinging without a bat and balls.

You can tell he’s a douche by the hat he was wearing at the game.

If she is a Dem I would have let her get hit out of fear she is a feminist and would have me charged with some sexual violation for contacting her boobs.

If she is a Republican I would have taken one in the face to protect her.

iam7545 on August 13, 2010 at 1:22 AM

DrMagnolias on August 13, 2010 at 4:26 AM

The issue not addressed in the comments is the double standard being applied. Why is a feminazi @$$ kisser like Harry Smith ragging on this KID for not being chivalrous? Women are not dainty, delicate and in need of protection! Their ‘stones’ are a match for ANY man, are they not? She should have caught the ball herself, Harry. As well as paid for the date and insisted the guy give her some carnal knowledge as recompense.

The kid is a goof, but perhaps he will learn after this experience. If you date a Lady, act like a Gentleman, not a boy. And, never, ever, ever do interviews on the MSM. One of the MSM’s prime directives is to make men look bad and there are plenty of hypocritical, 5th Columnist wussies like Harry Smith to help them do it.

JimP on August 13, 2010 at 5:51 AM

POST SCRIPT:

There is a lesson for the girl here too. ‘Ladies’ don’t do interviews with the MSM, especially ones that humiliate young men nationally. A Lady would privately and kindly admonish the kid and advise him of her standards. Public humiliation is declasse.

Nah ah. Deserved it. Put the dog down. Every second of it. My 9-yo tries to catch the ball, coming in, hands open, NO GLOVES. Mr. PPF does so, too. As for me, if I would’ve caught it (have not been lucky since childhood), after the ouch and burn, I would have bragged, showed it on the JumboTron, my family would have been all over me at the game and at home for a couple of hours. I’d have DermoPlast applied, and caught Mr. PPF’s balls after the game.

In other words which place is he going to see a higher score ?

Alpha males as currently defined always expect to score no matter where they take a date. They go where they want and expect the girl to go along with their choice. Only betas actually tailor a date for scoring potential as they need all the help they can get.

An alpha male would have told this guy that he didn’t appreciate being gender-stereotyped and that in today’s day and age a woman has as much right to catch a foul ball as a man does and he only got out of the way because he didn’t want to deprive her of that right.

Heywood U. Reedmore on August 13, 2010 at 10:48 AM
