Our friends at SB Nation say it was the kid’s fault.
This isn’t some political statement. Marco Rubio is fine here. We’re not talking about his politics, we’ll leave that up to you — but this is 100 percent on the hands (or head) of his receiver. The kid’s arms are wide like he’s catching a beach ball, his coordination is all off. Rubio threw a tight spiral.
