A Nets Game with Bill

We would like to thank Ali for her Bill Murray Story.

When I was about 10 years old, my dad took me to see a Nets game. He had gotten these amazing seats from work about 5 rows from the court. As soon as we sat down, my dad noticed Bill sitting about 4 rows directly in front of us.

A few minutes into the game, a food vendor selling cookies was walking up and down he isle. Bill stopped the vendor and bought about 5 cookies. He then stood up, looked around the crowd, and threw one directly at my head.

My dad and everyone else around us laughed hysterically and I just sat there staring blankly, confused and slightly embarrassed. He then sat down and acted like nothing happened and ate the rest of his cookies.

Now that I’m older, I can appreciate the humor in Bill Murray throwing a cookie at a 10 year old girl’s head in public.

  1. It’s a guy thing, and he was “giving” you a cookie probably, because when you catch a baseball (or anything) the easiest ones to catch are the ones coming right at your face… direct line of sight. You just put your hands up, and trap it as it reaches you. If you let it hit you in the head it either means you weren’t expecting it and couldn’t get your hands up fast enough to fend it off, or you weren’t cut out for baseball. But I admit, 4 rows is not enough time to catch an unanticipated cookie, lol.
