Mark Teixeira uses honey to lure bees during Yankees-Red Sox swarm delay (VIDEO)

A swarm of bees stopped play between the Yankees and Red Sox for seven minutes Tuesday afternoon. The delay occurred when a the bees were spotted buzzing around the left-field corner of George M. Steinbrenner Field.

After the grounds crew's bug spray assault to get rid of the pests failed, Mark Teixeira figured he had the solution. For some reason the Yankees first baseman grabbed two bottles of honey from the dugout, hoping to get the attention of the crew.

The bear-shaped bottles didn't help.

Broadcaster John Sterling asked whether the bees would "get drunk and fall over" if you threw beer on them, and Yankees manager Joe Girardi was rattling off lines from the movie "Tommy Boy."

The crowd cheered when Mike Carp courageously returned to left.

And this gives us a reason to show the famous scene featuring the late, great Chris Farley.
