In viral video news, Bo “The Bailer” has become famous on the internet because during a Major League Baseball game between the Houston Astros and the Atlanta Braves, Astros Third Baseman Chris Johnson hit a foul ball which headed in the direction of Bo and his girlfriend Sarah. Bo jumped out of the way leaving Sarah to take a direct hit from the ball.
Ben Parr over on Mashable has the full story. He says that it was all caught on tape, and then to make it even worse, the broadcasters went and interviewed him on TV. They also gave him the name “Bo the Bailer”, which I’m sure his friends will be using to torment him for years to come!
