What you see above is Toronto Blue Jays slugger Edwin Encarnacion hitting a big ol’ two-run homer against the New York Yankees in his team’s 6-1 opening day win. While the Yanks and starter Masahiro Tanaka had a rough day, the person who failed the hardest Monday at Yankee Stadium was in the stands.

If you missed it the other day, we suggest you also check out the fan who tried to grab a spring training foul ball and dove onto the field. That guy and this lady, they’ve already set the bar high for the most hilarious fans of 2015.
