When the Eagles paraded down Broad Street after winning the Super Bowl, head coach Doug Pederson caught a beer can thrown to him for drinking purposes. It was an accurate throw from an athletic and coordinated Philadelphia sports fan.
During the this week’s Red Sox parade, slovenly and unathletic Bostonians did the same thing but displayed incredibly shitty aim, hitting their manager and damaging the World Series trophy in the process.

I agree with “Bo Tilly.”
Whoever threw a beer on Alex Cora is a POS and their mom is a hoe.
Here’s the thing- you don’t OPEN THE BEER before throwing it. You toss it to the player or coach, then they open it, as demonstrated after the jump:
That’s how you do it.
Police said 19-year-old Patrick Connolly, of Sandwich, Massachusetts, was charged with disorderly conduct and assault and battery with a dangerous weapon. Police said the can struck but didn’t injure an unidentified man aboard one of the amphibious duck boats carrying players and their families in Wednesday’s parade.
It wasn’t immediately clear if the beer can Connolly allegedly threw was the same can that hit and damaged a World Series trophy or if the man it hit was a ballplayer.
Connolly told the arresting officers, according to the Boston Globe: “I love Cora. I didn’t mean to hit him.”
Yeah, well, maybe Patrick Connolly of Sandwich, Massachusetts should learn how to throw.
Red Sox fans, in addition to spraying Cora and his daughter, also did this:

You’d think Boston fans would know what they’re doing by now. They’ve only had something like 15 championship parades in the past 15 years.
