During Wednesday’s Diamondbacks game against the Rockies, announcers Steve Berthiaume and Bob Brenly got a bit carried away over a group of college-aged women taking selfies.
The photo shoot took place at Chase Field, where the Arizona Diamondbacks were hosting the Colorado Rockies. Pay no attention to that small detail, though, because these young ladies certainly weren’t.
Some highlights include: — “Do you have to make faces when you take selfies?” This face?
“That’s the best one of the 300 pictures I’ve taken of myself today!” — “Welcome to parenting in 2015.” — “Gotta take a selfie with the hot dog, selfie with the churro … selfie just of the selfie.” — This is a weird way to log what you eat.
Why would you pay good money to go to a baseball game and then just sit there and take selfies all night?
alpha chi omega diamondbacks selfies domestic violence
The women in the video seem to have remained positive about the situation. A local news outlet, Azcentral, reported that Fox Sports Arizona and the Diamondbacks reached out to the sorority sisters Thursday after they went viral to offer them free tickets to another game.
Alpha Chi Omega declined the tickets, and instead asked that they be given to a local organization that supports victims of domestic violence.
“If everyone who viewed this statement took the time to make a donation in recognition of domestic violence awareness, which is Alpha Chi Omega’s national philanthropy, we would be so grateful!” wrote the group on its Facebook page. “We are happy to have the opportunity to shed some positive light on such a sensitive subject.”
