Big Yankees fan tears off railing pad going for foul ball

There wasn't even one out at Friday night's Mariners-Yankees game at Yankee Stadium when a fan— who had obviously been watching too much gymnastics on TV— tried to imitate Gabby Douglas on the balance beam.  The only problem was that this Flailing Squirrel weighed about 250 pounds and the beam was the first base railing.

The man leaned over the rail to try and grab Curtis Granderson's line-drive foul ball only to fall head over heels onto the dirt ripping the padding off the rail and shredding any dignity he had left for at least 27 more outs.

His buddies cracked up as security came over to give the big guy a lecture— and maybe a low score on his form.

The guy's friends were laughing so hard, one had to towel off the sweat from his own face— or maybe he was just hiding it.

Stick to watching the game big guy and let the gym pixies do all the balancing.
