Check out this video of a Yankee fan falling on his backside during a wild tailgate party.

The irony of this video is striking to me.  You've got a Yankee fan decked out in a Derek Jeter jersey dancing to House of Pain's "Jump Around."  The song includes lyrics that say, "I came to get down."  That's exactly what ended up happening to this fan when he grabbed some type of wooden poll.  He got down.  Quickly.  The fan completely disappeared as the poll gave way.  Hey, you'll have that. 

The fan and his friends now have a funny story to tell, and retell, and retell.  By the way, what's up with the guy in the Jon Lester jersey shirt not getting heckled by the Yankee faithful at all throughout this entire video?  This video lasts for over a minute.  That's plenty of time for some sort of foreign object to be hurled at a Red Sox fan who's hanging out in Yankee country.  Right or wrong?  Freakin true.

The Yankees face the Chicago White Sox tonight at 8:10pm ET.  Phil Hughes (12-10) will start opposite of Chris Sale (14-4).  The Yankees lead over the Tampa Bay Rays is down to four games in the AL East.  Listen to coverage of the Yankees take on the White Sox tonight at 8:10pm on 104.5 The Team, ESPN Radio.
