    Fan Runs Onto Field, Throws Pitch at Angels-Mariners Game (Video)

    Okay, so maybe this fan didn’t actually throw a pitch, but he did mimic one after making his way onto the field during Sunday’s game between the Mariners and Angels at Angel Stadium. Have a look: A ball would have helped, but it was still a lot better than 50 Cent’s first pitch.  And the […]

    Going to the Internet to study people’s grammar is basically like a suicide mission. You can’t hope for triumph, you can only minimize the damage done to your eyes and brain.
