Man Shatters Phone at Cricket Game Attempting to Catch a Ball

It seems like people are constantly telling you to get off your phone so that you can “live in the moment” and all that other cliche stuff. But, as annoying as it sounds, in some cases it’s true.

Like this man, who was at a cricket match and holding his phone, not fully paying attention to the game. When Kumar Sangakkara hit the ball into the crowd, the man looked up and attempted to catch the ball, but let go of his most prized possession in the process, completely shattering it

This is an important lesson for all of us to put our phones away at events instead of staring at our screens all day.

But I think the even bigger lesson is don’t ditch your phone just so you can attempt to catch a ball.
