Practically every single article covering the two “Indians fans” who had full-on sex during last night’s MLB game at Cleveland’s progressive field has made some kind of pun about the couple “scoring big” or “hitting a real home run,” and the incident has gone viral after an eagle-eyed fan spotted the couple having sex in the nosebleed section of the bleachers and photographed them.
The image is blurry, but it was still enough to warrant over 3,000 retweets in the first 21 hours, a fact that commenters on the photo are quick to point out.
The original poster, twitter user Sav, got a lot more attention a lot more quickly than she bargained for, as tens of thousands of comments were quickly left by MLB fans and others from around the web, analyzing every aspect of the photographed incident.
The commenters also said how ridiculous they found it that two people can “just have sex at a game,” speculating that the two lovebirds must have been either very drunk or very ambitious.
As far as public sex spots go, however, the bleachers at a Cleveland Indians game is not a shocking choice for a location because they are nearly always empty. In fact, reports BaseballReference.com, Progressive Field’s average attendance during the four games it has hosted so far in 2016 has only been 20,000, just over 50 percent of its maximum capacity. And the nosebleed seats, the ones at the top of the outfield bleachers, are nearly always a secluded spot.
There were also a lot of comments claiming that the star-crossed lovers having sex in the middle of an MLB game were, in fact, the most interesting thing to watch there.
Get it, because the Indians are traditionally a fairly bad team whose matchups are devoid of action?
The thing is that last night’s Indians-Mets duel was actually pretty action-packed, what with three of the Mets players (Curtis Granderson, Yoenis Cespedes, and Neil Walker) hitting home runs and three players from each team hitting for extra bases.
The final score was Indians 7, Mets 5.
There were also a good amount of comments speculating that maybe the couple having sex was actually a lucky omen that led to Cleveland’s victory.
Others theorized about the identity of the mysterious man in the hoodie watching the duo having sex, with possibilities including New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick, the Unibomber, and Michael Jordan.
Apparently, the law forbidding public sex was waived in this case, because the couple did not face any legal action. Maybe MLB wants to encourage the practice; it would be a fantastic publicity stunt to have a couple having sex in the bleachers every game.
