A beer vendor at Comerica Park shows that the giant blue bucket can be used for something besides carrying cans of delicious, refreshing, inebriation-causing hops-based beverages. It can also be used for catching baseballs.
I don’t know that I would recommend using the blue bucket primarily for catching baseballs though. It’s main role should be carrying beer around. If you want to catch baseballs, then get a glove.
If every vendor started using the blue bucket to try catching baseballs, how would they carry the beer? And if they couldn’t carry the beer, how could drunk fans get more beer at their seats?
Without beer in the bucket, fans would have to haul their drunk asses all the way to the concession stand to get more beer. That’s a long walk when you’re wasted. You could easily get lost. Or robbed. Or kidnapped. Or even murdered.
So yeah, we should keep beer in the bucket. We should not encourage vendors to use the bucket for catching baseballs. If it happens, it happens. But let’s not make a thing out of this.
Don’t deprive the drunks of their beer. Don’t make the drunks stagger all over the stadium in search of beer. Do the right thing, vendors of America.
