OMAHA, Neb. — Look ma, ONE HAND!
A baseball fan from Minneota, Minnesota is seriously buzzing on social media after catching a home run ball with one hand at the College World Series, all without spilling his beer.
ESPN posted the awe-inspiring clip on its Twitter feed, showing 23-year-old Austin Buysse making the catch during the Texas Tech-Arkansas game, then chugging his Coors Light and spiking the plastic cup like he had just scored a touchdown to win the Super Bowl.
The sports network aptly titled the play "The catch and the chug."
Making the whole thing even more awesome is that with his straight bangs, Buysse is a dead ringer for Lloyd Christmas, Jim Carey's wacky lead character from the movie "Dumb and Dumber."
The Sioux Falls Argus-Leader say Buysse, a former college quarterback at Dakota Wesleyan University, instantly became a social media hero, with people reposting the clip with comments of admiration.
"I'm impressed that I actually caught it," Buysse told the Argus-Leader when asked if he was more proud of the catch or the fact he didn't sacrifice his suds to make the grab.
Buysse is also an amateur baseball player with the Minneota Mudhens, and an online Masters student at DWU for education policy administration.
