    Breaking news: Sunglasses are more than a fashion accessory! Pass that information along to Giants outfielder Hunter Pence, please.

    Pence showed a lack of understanding for the actual real-life use for sunglasses on Monday during the Giants season opener in Los Angeles, trying to field a pop fly, losing said pop fly in the sun and doing it all with sunglasses not actually covering his eyes.

    This was, as you can see, during the bottom of the sixth inning, in a tie game, with no one on and no one out.

    Mark Ellis ended up with a double. The good news for Pence is that the Giants were able to keep the Dodgers off the scoreboard in this inning, with Matt Cain pitching out of a jam and getting the next three batters out.

    Obviously things wouldn't go well for the rest of the game, with Clayton Kershaw hitting a jack off of George Kontos in the seventh inning that would give the Dodgers the win.

    The Giants look to bounce back on Tuesday in L.A. with Madison Bumgarner on the mound facing off against newcomer Hyun-Jin Ryu.

    But in the meantime, MEMES:
