Well this clearly didn't go as planned...
With a ball flying in his general direction during Monday night's Rockies - Diamondbacks MLB game one fan made an attempt to get his hands on it - but ended up losing both the ball and his date.
As the ball approached, the gentleman in question showed good balance initially to rise from his seat, beer in hand, and make a move towards the trajectory of the ball.
But then it all went wrong.
First the ball slipped through his hands, and then, as he turned to claim the botched catch, he upturned his beer all over his date sitting in the seat beside him.
And it's fair to say she wasn't best pleased as she shared a few choice words with the embarrassed fan.
To top it all off, the guy sitting on the other side of his date got his hands on the ball.
