We’ll Sell You the Whole Seat, But You’ll Only Steal the Edge

You know you've been too damn busy when you're only finding out about the enormous man who tried to take his stadium seat home with him via Deadspin:

Hosler, 20, was charged with vandalism and theft after police said he broke the seat – Section 142, Row 3, Seat 4 – and took it out of Great American Ball Park.
quote from that Rob Butcher deleted
Hosler, listed as 6-foot-8 inches tall in the police report, apparently broke the seat portion – the part where fans sit – of his chair and decided to take it home as a souvenir.

6-foot-8? That's an Aaron-Harang-sized-dude walking around with a chair in his shorts. If that ain't news, nothing is.

    Row 3?

    I didn’t know we had those. I say let him keep it.

    Heck yeah. It was broken anyway. They’re lucky he didn’t get a splinter and sue the ballpark.

    😀 Yes, where exactly was Hosler sitting in Section 142? I’ve sat in a Row Z and a Row M in the Sun/Moon deck, but never a Row 3.

    Maybe it’s the special Big and Tall row for men.

    Oh! I forgot that the rows were lettered. And I was just there this weekend. I did have quite a bit of beer, though.

    With the Giants/Reds series winding down, I thought it would be a good time to link to this little thing RHM wrote a while ago:
