RANDOM QUICKIE: 1971 TOPPS SAM McDOWELL

So...what EXACTLY is Sam McDowell so pissed about on his 1971 Topps card (#150)?!
Jeez! He may not have intended it, but this HAS to go down as one of the (accidentally) funniest cards out there from the decade!
Just take a gander at the expression on McDowell's face! He looks PISSED!!! Good gosh man! Calm down...
What is going on here? Was he trying to be funny? Or was he really not a happy camper when this photo was snapped? I'd love to know the background to this pose.
I just hope the photographer asked him for his "game face", and Sam did a bit of over-acting. If not, could you imagine having THAT staring you down in the batter's box?
By now we all know McDowell had his own personal demons lurking beneath the surface, but was he THIS tortured even during a baseball card shoot?
Wow...

Did someone in the stands just piss him off?!
