Iowa Fan Holds Sign at World Series Reading “It Wasn’t a Fair Catch”

It’s difficult to track the MLB Playoffs now that the Minnesota Twins are no longer a part of the festivities. But, on Monday night in game 1 of the World Series, an uneducated Iowa Hawkeyes fan brought Minnesota back into the national spotlight when he brought a sign with him to his seat behind home plate that read “It wasn’t a fair catch”.

In all fairness to this Hawkeye fan, he’s right. The Cooper DeJean did not legally signal for a fair catch during the punt return that never happened between the Minnesota Gophers and Iowa Hawkeyes this season. The waving he did with his left arm, before catching that punt, triggered an invalid fair catch signal.

I’m not going to get into the weeds because this happened two weeks ago. We’ve already covered that invalid fair catch from all angles. Unlike this dude, we’ve moved on with our lives.

But, if you have not moved on with yours OR if you’re a Houston Astros / Texas Rangers fan that has no idea why some loser Iowa fan is holding a dumb sign behind home plate tonight, here’s all (seriously everything) you need to catch up on the situation.
