"Keith Carmickle and his friends had already caught three balls during Major League Baseball's Home Run Derby Monday night and wanted more. He nearly got a lot more: a headfirst fall to a pool deck about 20 feet below. Chasing a home run hit by Milwaukee's Prince Fielder, Carmickle was saved from a long fall when his brother and a friend grabbed him around the legs and arms, then pulled him back as he dangled above the deck area behind the pool in right field at Chase Field. His near miss came the same day as the memorial service for Shannon Stone, a 39-year-old fan who died last Thursday while trying to catch a ball thrown into the stands at a Texas Rangers home game. 'I thought: I've lived a good life,' Carmickle said about dangling." [editor's note: OK, this is now officially STUPID; while Mr. Stone's fatal fall could be considered a tragic accident, this dingbat was just plain foolish! And please, we don't need another law to protect these imbeciles from themselves! - SAT] (07/12/11)
