America’s putting its two cents in to 50 Cent: Don’t quit your day job, buddy.
If you don’t believe that, then take a gander around the internet, where just about every publication under the sun – from People to Major League Baseball – is having a good chuckle at the rapper’s expense, all thanks to his horrendous first pitch at the New York Mets game the other night.
Yet, at this point, 50 could likely compete for a spot in New York’s bullpen.
Certainly, TWHS is a tad late to the game, and I can’t even blame THE WIFE. Heck, upon seeing the headline, THE WIFE even blurted out, “Yeah, I saw that on People.com”.
That may have to lead to a quick and painless removal of my man card.
50 Cent’s gem – featured below – is appropriately coupled with Bob Uecker’s brilliant line from Major League.
The first pitch, in all its glory, is easily replacing the ugly past audible performances of the National Anthem. Yes, we’re talking about you, Roseanne Barr.
People would rather see a wild pitch than hear a screeching voice, and I can’t blame them.
But with as many bad ones as there have been over the years, which one is the worst of all?
I mean, the absolute WORST.
There are so many to choose from, so why not limit it down to three standouts, including the one recently thrown by 50 Cent? In addition, there is fellow musician Carly Rae Jepsen, and Baba Booey, executive producer of The Howard Stern Show.
First, Jepsen’s weak toss, thrown at a Tampa Bay Rays game last season:
If it ever reaches the plate, call me.
Now, onto Baba Booey’s first pitch, also thrown during a Mets game back in 2009. By the way, some people actually refer to him as Gary Dell’Abate.
Perhaps it’s just something that the Mets bring out of its fans and guests.
And players – double zing.
Enough clowning – which of the three is the ABSOLUTE WORST first pitch?
Finally, in the spirit of ugly game opening tosses, check out this montage of first pitches, via YouTube.
Oh, and my vote? It goes to 50 Cent, because the guy is ripped and clearly works out. One would think that he had some athletic ability. Apparently, he doesn’t work out using medicine balls. Otherwise, he might kill someone.
The others – Carly Rae and Baba Booey – get passes, because they more look the part.
Sorry guys, but it’s true.
Play ball…. and watch the heck out!
