Let’s face it – Facebook is now an addiction. Most people can’t go a few minutes without checking their Facebook page or posting a status. In fact, there are now even laws against driving while texting or checking Facebook.
That law should now include attending baseball games.
Travis Decker was at a Padres/Reds game the other night when he was struck by a foul ball hit by Will Venable. That’s a pretty normal occurance. But Decker wasn’t paying attention to the game. He was updating his Facebook status to let all of his friends know he was watching a game.
Instead of telling updating his status to let his friends know he was at a baseball game, he can now imbed the video on Facebook of his “accident” which has now made national headlines.
