Many of you probably saw the Colts vs Giants game last night. What you might have missed during the commercial break was Brandon Jacobs throwing his helmet into the stands. Which he claims was an accident. The helmet ended up about 10 rows up and some fan thought he had just caught his next Ebay profit.
Why this guy thought he owned the helmet I have no idea. Just because somebody throws something they own and you go over and pick it up does not mean you now own that item. People get mad, pissed off, frustrated and sometimes they take it out on whatever is in their hand.
Part of me wants to blame baseball. They’ve let people keep foul balls and thrown bats for decades. People forget that these major sporting leagues are letting you keep these items. Just because a guy loses his grip on a baseball bat doesn’t mean its not his anymore.
“Guy in the Colts uniform” who tried to keep the helmet should grow up and act like an adult. Give the helmet back and quit trying to steal from people. Its not your helmet and you can’t just go around picking things up and claiming them as your own. Oh and Brandon Jacobs, put your helmet on and start trying to hit the other team with it instead of throwing it at fans.
