Life comes at you fast, especially when you’re racing against the “Freeze.”
During Friday night’s home game between the Atlanta Braves and the New York Mets, one unfortunate Braves fan experienced the internet’s favorite adage himself during a “Beat the Freeze” showdown with a masked professional athlete dressed as “the Freeze.” (Though, tbh, he definitely looks like Frozone, a superhero from Disney’s The Incredibles.)
It’s miraculous, really. First the fan gets something like a 200-foot head start. Then the fans begins to hear the cheers from anxious audience members watching the Freeze quickly creep up on his unsuspecting victim, thinking everyone is rooting for him.
And in a matter of seconds, he raises his arms to pump up the crowd, realizes the Freeze is right next to him, and then takes a glorious dive into the ground, just mere feet from the finish line.
“That’s where he belongs, right in the dirt,” one commentator jokes.
“The Freeze’ll get you every time,” another piles on.
