It's pretty thankless work being a ball boy. Your Just spending your days shagging pigskins because you're such a huge fan of these guys that you'll do anything you can to get close to some of your heroes. So how world-shattering do you think it was for David Foscaldo—the unlucky Patriots ball boy who got slapped by then-Jets kicker Nick Lowery back in 1995? Granted, this ball boy was more like a "ball man" given that he was 20 years old at the time, but is there anything more degrading than getting smacked upside the head by a kicker? After Lowery claimed that the balls Foscaldo were giving him were "rock hard" and needed to be warmed up, he slapped him after Foscaldo responded with some lip.
