Maybe I’m easily amused, but this reeks of coolness. It’s a pan & zoom image of Yankee Stadium during the Yankees vs. Red Sox game of 4 July 2008. Boston won 6-4 on a freak triple.
[See below for the linkoids.]
Here’s the wide angle, and I decided to zoom in. The second thing I was looking for was a guy who probably drives a Babe Magnet: Where’s Waldork?
Game is underway, 1st Inning.
An obnoxious jerk can be found anywhere, and I guessed that the cheap seats would be a good bet.
This section looked promising. Completely arbitrary guess.
Getting closer! Stadium usher in the aisle is eyeballing someone…
Ooh! We have a candidate, and it’s not the waterbed in the back row or the wannabe in the front.
WOOP! DEY HE IS!
Rock out dude! Everyone should be playing air guitar at a Yankees game! Or are you yelling at the umpire already, as if he can hear you from a half-mile away. DUDE, it’s only the first inning. Chill.
Don’t double-dose your meds again, dood. Everyone’s ignoring you (except for the usher, the lady in the red tunic and the one in white southwest of you on the previous image). What Babe Magnet do you drive, bro?

[UPDATE: HERE’S A BONAFIDE COMPETITION. FIRST ONE OF Y’ALL TO EMAIL BUNK A SCREEN SHOT (.jpg file only) OF THE GUY IN THIS STADIUM CROWD WHO’S POINTING DIRECTLY AT THE CAMERA WINS A VERY COOL PRIZE IN 100% WORKING CONDITION, INCLUDING BATTERIES AND INSTRUCTIONS, IN ORIGINAL PACKAGING!]
[This Contest is on as long as CNN/SI keeps their site open, or until a winner is announced on THIS website. If CNN closes its site, and no one has offered/emailed a winning .jpg image to Bunk Strutts at the contact address CLEARLY shown above, this contest is closed, null and void, and we’ll snivel out of awarding anyone anything. By submitting a .jpg image, y’all agree that this is all in fun and stuff, and everything that that this statement means in a colloquial sense releases Bunk and his Crack Team of Webminers from any and all legal responsibility. In other words, we won’t owe you a damn thing beyond what is promised and awarded via these described caveats, no matter what… just a damn thing that works, beeps when it’s supposed to, and requires batteries. The prize-winner pays the shipping costs and may or may not owe Bunk a slab of coldies.]
[Update 26 August 2008: Contest is now closed. Winner to be announced.]
[UPDATE 28 AUGUST 2008: WE HAVE A WIENER!]
