Ryan Jones can predict the future

Aug 1, 2012, 1:10 PM EDT

Edmonton Oilers forward Ryan Jones showed his clairvoyant side on Tuesday while attending a Minnesota Twins-Chicago White Sox game at Target Field.

Prior to the game, Jones tweeted:

“Hitting up the Twins game tonight!! Look out women and children… I am stopping at nothing to catch a ball today. #minusspillingmybeer”

In the bottom of the sixth, his premonition came true. Twins OF Darin Mastroianni grounded a foul ball close to where Jones was sitting — and the guy they call “Junkman” made the snag:


“Look what I just caught!!!” Jones tweeted. “Even saved my beer!”

Jones’ exploits later received mention on Sportsnet (click here for a thorough breakdown of the called shot), something that amused him to no end.

“I guess this is one way to make the news in the summer,” he tweeted. “Best way I can think of.”

      I actually played with him earlier this year. His game was pretty decent I thought. We played in a scramble and it was early in the year and raining out, so doubt it was his best. Really nice guy and fun to be around.

      Good to see he is still up here in Minny. Good luck on the season Ryan.
