In what is easily the worst excuse I have heard today, an 18 year old Yankees fan named Dylan McCue-Masone a.k.a. @MansoneDylan blamed Twitter for his shenanigans when he rushed the field during the All Star game a few days ago.
I want you to understand that I am saying this a person who has also heard these two pathetic excuses today. 1) I didn’t clean my room because Ian distracted me; and 2) I couldn’t feed the cat because I heard a buzzing sound in my room. I know a poor excuse for an excuse when I hear one, but this isn’t about my children. This is about Dylan.
Dylan told twitter that if he got 1000 retweets (RT in twitterspeak) he would run across the field.
As you can see, at the time this screenshot was taken he has 3,556 retweets. Not bad!
Unless you are Dylan.
Wait you guys, the plot thickens. His mom doesn’t want him to do it!
His mom has a good point. Running out onto the field during an all-star game is a terrible idea. Did you know you could go to prison for it? Did you know you could be charged with third-degree criminal trespassing? I bet Dylan didn’t. I know for a fact he knows that now.
But Dylan was not deterred by parental warnings.
Then this happened.
Dylan now faces a year in prison.
One time my niece told Instagram that if she got 100 likes she would cover her face in peanut butter and take a picture of it and post it. I don’t understand why anyone would do that. I mean, I liked the picture, just to be a jerk, but I don’t understand the reasoning behind asking social media to dare you to do something. Social media will dare you. Social media will double-dog dare you no take backs.
My niece got 135 likes. She still hasn’t posted the PB and face picture. I am not condoning this behavior, but at least she isn’t going to the big house.
I can’t sit here and say that all of my tweets have perfect punctuation, nor can I say that I haven’t gotten drunk and done stupid things at baseball games, but so far I haven’t done anything at a sporting event that has gotten me arrested. Probably because Twitter isn’t the boss of me. Maybe because I try to listen to my mother.
YOU SHOULD HAVE LISTENED TO YOUR MOTHER, DYLAN.
