Hey, Red Sox fans! Does the adorable nature of this video make Bill Buckner’s error in Game 6 of the 1986 World Series any more digestible? Does the fact that these Kenyan schoolchildren still possess the childlike wonder with which most of us once looked at baseball make it any less difficult to accept the fact that sometimes even the pros make mistakes? No? Yeah, that’s what I thought.
According to the YouTube description of this vid, passed our way by Jonah Keri, the students in the above clip wanted to make a video paying tribute and reenacting a famous American sports moment. They had considered remaking the infamous “Music City Miracle” game between the Buffalo Bills and Tennessee Titans.
Maybe they just couldn’t get the angle right on the forward lateral to Kevin Dyson (jokes, Titans fans).
