    Obama's pitch will mark 100-year tradition - Chicago Breaking Sports

    *preemptive facepalm for the inevitable girl throw*

    Can we bring back W to do this? I don't like our POTUS looking like a total fairy in front of baseball fans.

    I bet your crystal ball is broken and he throws the ball just fine.

    There are three ways to throw a baseball:

    1) Like a pitcher, where you draw your throwing arm back as far as you can and put your entire physiology into the throw. Witness Bob Gibson:

    2) The short arm, where you draw your arm back behind your ear and throw the baseball more like a football. Although this provides a quicker release, it takes a stronger arm to put any velocity on the throw. See Ivan Rodriquez:

    3) Like a girly-girl:

    Most likely, he will have Nancy Pelosi holding on to his balls keeping them warm before he tosses one.
