    Mallory's ceremonial first pitch

    The mayor of our beloved city of Cincinnati threw out the absolute worst ceremonial first pitch I've ever seen in my 38 years of life. Eric Davis looked absolutely baffled as the mayor's toss was headed directly toward the Reds on deck circle rather than home plate.

    How we lookin?.........NOT GOOD.

    Yea, not that it matters a hill of beans to the outcome of the game or human history or anything. But that was one sad, sad, sad "throw".

    Cheif Bender (who is maybe in his 90's, 80's at least) had a better looking throw last year. Forget which game. He threw it from the rubber, and while it bounced and rolled (hey, the guys's old) it at least ended up at home plate. Mallory's throw? Not so much.

    I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate

    I was there. People booed him which was kind of sad, but it was a terrible, terrible throw.

    Had to be embarassing for the poor guy.

    I don't blame them. Throwing out the first pitch for the Reds opener is one heck of an honor. That was the saddest, most pathetic effort I've ever seen.

    The umpire pretended to throw him out of the game.

    There was no pretend in that.

    Mallory got run before the 1st pitch.

    Perhaps one of the only good calls the boys in blue made today.

    I was less than impressed with the man behind the plate. Inconsistent zone is putting it nicely.

    Ya think he practiced and played catch a few times to get prepared for that throw?

    Just have a look back at the Kennedy-Nixon debate... I wonder how many future votes he lost with that "throw" today?

    It had to be better than Bush's. Mind you I didn't get to see GW's as I was forced to wait outside the stadium for an hour and 15 minutes do to ridiculous security.

    Yes, I am still bitter. The first pitch should never be more important than the game on opening day.

    To give those who have not seen it an idea of how baaaaadddddd it was... it made the ESPN SportsCenter highlights. ESPN doesn't show 1st pitches unless it is a president, a vice president, etc. They did nto show mayors of mid-sized cities... unless it is so pathetic that it needs to be shown for the laugh.
