Throw It From The Mound, Lady!

One of my favorite baseball jokes from childhood goes something like this: [Current US President] is sitting in the front row for Opening Day. The PA announcer acknowledges the president, who looks around for the next several seconds, confused. A Secret Service agent whispers something into [Current US President]’s ear. Suddenly, the prez turns to his wife, grabs her by the hair and throws her over the railing and onto the field. The Secret Service agent barks, “No, no Mr. President! You were supposed to throw out the first pitch!” Thank you. Try the veal.

So this 109-year-old woman threw out the first pitch at a minor league game on her birthday. Then, one could hope, bragged about it to her husband all the way home. He probably just turned off his hearing aid during the car ride. Old people are not only cute, they’re also more durable than Mark Prior.
