Overly Patient Husband Totally Ruins Gender Reveal Video

There's been a revolution in baseball over the past decade or so.

When considering a player's productivity, traditional stats such as home runs and batting average simply aren't as important as they once were, not when analysts have realized that almost nothing matters more than simply getting on base.

And, based on the video below, it’s pretty clear that Kyle Tait agrees with this theory.

Kyle and his wife are expecting a baby.

They decided to learn the baby's gender prior to him or her actually entering the world, but they decided to learn this gender in creative fashion:

With a friend behind the camera, the expecting mother has a ball in her hand that is filled with either blue paint or pink paint.

Kyle has a bat in his hands.

The idea is that his wife will soft toss him the ball…. Kyle will hit said ball… and the subsequent explosion will reveal whether the couple will soon welcome a girl (pink!) or a boy (blue!).

Easy enough, right?

Except: Kyle, who works as a sports broadcaster in Atlanta, apparently takes pride in his keen batting eye.

So when his wife gently throws her pitch… he doesn't swing! And the ball crashes to the ground! And it opens up on contact! And pink paints seeps all over the driveway!

This means the couple will be having a girl (Hooray! Congrats to them! We wish her well!), but it also means there's no chance to do the video over again.

Some critics out there think Kyle took his wife's pitch on purpose in order to help the following footage go viral.

We just think he the up-and-in delivery wasn't in his sweet spot and Kyle wasn't about to swing and miss and embarrass himself in front of his future son or daughter.

Watch the video and decide what you believe:

Virgin Airlines Turns Away 3-Year Old Cancer Patient

To borrow a saying frequently used on Twitter these days, Virgin Airlines has a message for United and Delta:

Hold my beer.

In the wake of the latter two companies embroiling themselves in indefensible scandals, Virgin has gone ahead and committed what might be the worst PR disaster of all.

Virgin Airlines

Billie-Jean Simon tells The Daily Mail Australia that she and her three-year old daughter, Payton, were boarding a Brisbane flight bound for Newcastle last Wednesday.

The pair arrived at the gate on time, but Payton felt sick during boarding and had to be rushed to the bathroom.

The toddler sadly suffers from acute myeloid leukemia and “you just can’t tell a kid to hurry up when they’re being sick,” Billie-Jean’s mother, Tina Mancini, told the newspaper.

This seems like an obvious statement and not much of a controversy, right?

We wish that were the case.

mother, sick child

According to Tina, Billie-Jean and her sick child returned from the bathroom just “one minute” after the cut-off time for boarding.

Billie-Jean explained the situation to the Virgin employees at the gate.

She said that Payton was on her way to receive stem-cell treatment in Newcastle, an appointment she very badly needed to attend after having already endured 16 rounds of chemotherapy at Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital.

This was all relayed to the attendants and “they closed the door in her face,” Tina told Sunshine Coast Daily.

She added that Billie-Jean could “see people still walking down” the tunnel to the airplane.

It was still parked at the gate. The airline very easily could have let Billie-Jean and her CANCER-STRICKEN young daughter on board.

Alas, they stuck to the absolute letter of their law and did not budge on their boarding policy.

“When she asked about the next flight she was told it would be another $ 600, despite having insurance,” Tina explained. “With money so tight at the moment, it just wasn’t something she could afford.”

Therefore, mother and ill child drove until 1 a.m. to reach their destination.

They have since set up a GoFundMe page to help the family with the financial burden of Payton’s disease.

Over the last few weeks, the airline industry has been caught in one public relations humane disaster after another.

You’ve likely read by now about the United Airlines passenger who was bloodied and bruised after getting dragged off an overbooked flight.

But there was also the Delta passenger who got the boot from a plane for using the bathroom while it was still grounded.

And then Delta was at it again just a few days ago when it threatened to jail a mother and father who initially refused to take their very young kids off a plane that, once again, had been overbooked.

Watch their exchange with a flight attendant below: 

But closing the boarding door in the face of a three-year old with cancer?

The competition is stiff, but we need to congratulate Virgin Airlines for this act.

It’s officially the most despicable example of airline company behavior to date!
