In the video below, you'll see one of the more impressive illustrations of how pouting works. Those of us with young children are likely immune to the display to a certain extent, since we see it a few times a week, but the power of the pout worked on the Giants broadcasting team.

To set the scene, in a recent Giants game, a foul ball went up into the crowd and came within a foot or so of a young boy. The woman in front of him corralled the ball and even celebrated. The young boy did not take it well and let his frustrations known. To his credit, he wasn't crying or screaming. He was just, well, really mad. Seeing this, the Giants broadcasting crew sent a ball out to the boy -- and another one in the area -- so all is well that ends well.

It is pitiful that the woman did not give the kid the ball.  I was at a Flyers/Rangers game at MSG and Brierre looked right at my brother and I and flipped us a puck during warmups.  Did we keep the puck?  Of course not.  There were 20 kids around us so we gave it to one of them.  It is just the right thing to do and i am sure he told everyone he knew about the puck he caught at the game.  On another note, if i pouted like that when i was a kid i would have received a nice pat on the butt!

The guy that caught it should have given it to any of the kids around him in the first place. What does a 30 year old need a baseball for anyway ?
