In the tradition of Will Ferrell announcing that Carlos Boozer still lives with his mother, the Chicago Cubs brought in Ferrell and The Campaign co-star Zach Galifianakis into Wrigley this week to throw out the first pitch, read the game’s line-up cards and just generally f**k around on the field until they were told to leave.
Highlights include Ferrell having pizza delivered to the mound so he could have dinner with Ryan Dempster, and exchanges like this:
Galifianakis: “Batting sixth and playing catcher, in his spare time he’s an accountant at a styrofoam cooler company, No. 18 Giovanni Soto.”
Ferrell: “Batting seventh and playing second base, he likes to take long walks on the beach … completely naked, No. 15 Darwin Barney.”
We’ve got the important video clips below, including the one where Will stands up at the dinner table and yells at Steve Clevenger for forty minutes about how he drives a Dodge Stratus.

Looks like Chelsea’s busy summer of transfers looks set to continue – they’ve just signed Hollywood A listers Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis! (via footyblog.net)
That’s probably not going to help your team a lot.
Zach and Will should keep this going and tour every imaginable sport until they’re showing up back stage on WWE Raw and winning elementary school Field Day egg relay competitions to promote The Campaign.
