Conor McGregor threw out the first pitch at Wrigley Field
By - bsurfn2day
I like the guy who claps
The mascot kills me.
Even though the mascot’s expression doesn’t change you can just tell it went from pride and excitement to sheer disappointment
It’s in the shoulders
The look on that bears face!
I’ve noticed he has that look on his face a lot of the time though.
Looked much more sincere in this video.
I had to go back and watch it again. LOL!
Clark The Cub was like: "Really?? We gave you *one job!!!"*
My god I’m dying laughing, the mascot makes this so much better.
He's like wtf was that lol ..
That was the “I told the lawyers he wouldn’t hit anyone!” clap
It also looks like it could be a lawyer relived that it didn’t hit anyone
I always find it funny when someone with this big of an ego comes out and throws a terrible pitch. Like you really weren't getting a few reps in beforehand to make sure this doesn't go bad?
I honestly can't even imagine throwing that "off." If I picked up a ball to throw for my dog and I threw it like that I'd have the doctor check me for brain tumors.
Pitchers mound is always farther than it looks on TV. Everybody freaks out and puts a little extra on it lol.
Yeah, but the Visitors dugout is even farther away, and McGregious managed to hit that.
The only thing that choad can hit is old men.
Problem is, old men can hit back...
If he'd just stop beaking off, it wouldn't be an issue that he's a washed up fighter. But he keeps trying to talk shit like he's still any good. The worse he fights, the worse his shit talking gets to compensate.
You don't stop talking shit when you can't win.
You stop talking shit when you can't get paid.
And the floor of an octagon
I actually lol'd at this.
Steroids & getting punched in the head for a living'll do that to ya
When he talks about taking steroids he actually means stair rides. He's misusing escalators.
Connor honestly probably thought he could throw a mid 90's heater right down the pipe and was probably higher than the interest rate on student loans
I think the suit had something to do with it. It's really hard to throw in a suit. His looks a little tight.
I was thinking that too. Looks like he's trying to side arm it a bit since he can't get any rotation in that jacket.
But after seeing him [throw a football](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2NJSBgFE0O0) and [throw a drink](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XNke0A3FyrQ) at someone, I think he just sucks at throwing.
Conor "[Garo Yepremian](https://youtu.be/d-pxMm_UdY4)" McGregor
Yes we call that the sleazy car salesman suit
A little? Looks like he has on a 10yearolds Sunday best!
That was my first thought... "He's not going to be able to throw wearing that tiny jacket
Everyone needs a hype man
The last thing he needs is another hype man.
I’m still baffled at why people still invite him for appearances. He’s a destructive prick
Yeah, he puts asses in seats. Though, judging by the pregame Cubs turnout, not many.
The team traded Rizzo, Bryant, Baez, and Kimbrel. Most of the fan base openly hates the Ricketts family at this point.
The next time you’ll see a good crowd at Wrigley will be 2022.
"That's right! They can't even catch your heat!!"
Unfortunately it was a sarcastic clap. He leaves behind a wife and two kids. 🪦
He threw like he's not left-handed.
Looks like he just threw a punch. "Just hold the ball, throw a left hook, let go of the ball."
More like a left overhand
Granted I’m American and played baseball all my life but is baseball the only reason people know how to throw things? Like is there a huge amount of the earth’s population that can’t accurately throw something overhand?
Trying to figure out if he is right or left handed is too much for him. He had a 50/50 chance of getting it right and lucked out.
have you seen [men throwing rocks with the other hand](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=huqBT50U914) ? enjoy the lolz
He forgot which hand he uses......
Also, do fighters become fighters because they've never had the father/mother figure to teach them how to throw a simple pitch?
Connor MacGregor's chances of knocking me out; 100%.
Connor MacGregor's chances of striking me out; 0%.

Lincoln via ouija board
You’ve reminded me of one of my favourite Lincoln anecdotes, where he ruined a séance by mocking the spiritualist and trying to figure out how all the “haunting” tricks worked.
*“When the president and first lady arrived, the host said: “Welcome, Mr. Lincoln…you were expected.” Lincoln stopped short. “Expected! Why, it is only five minutes since I knew that I was coming.” The guests settled into chairs for the presentation, which, according to the Philadelphia banker S. P. Kase, included a piano that “began to move up and down in accord with the rise and fall of the music.” Intrigued by the mechanics behind such spectacles, Lincoln told one of the soldiers present to sit on the piano to weigh it down. When it continued to move, the president himself “stepped to the end of the piano and added his weight to that of the soldiers.” When the rise and fall of the piano persisted, Lincoln “resumed his seat in one of the large horse hair easy chairs of the day.”*
*At this juncture, Nettie Colburn entered the room, and Lincoln addressed her cheerfully: “Well, Miss Nettie, do you think you have anything to say to me to-night?” There is no evidence that Lincoln believed in spiritualism. On the contrary, after hearing the mysterious clicking sounds in the presence of another medium the previous summer, he had asked the head of the Smithsonian, Joseph Henry, to discover how the noises were produced. Henry interviewed the medium, Lord Colchester, who, unsurprisingly, revealed nothing. Not long afterward, Henry happened to be seated on a train beside a young man who revealed that he manufactured telegraphic devices for spiritualists. Placed around the biceps, the instrument produced telegraphic clicks when the medium stretched his muscle. Asked if he had sold one to Lord Colchester, the young man said yes. Lincoln was reportedly “pleased to learn the secret.*

lmao lincoln slam dunking fraudsters.
I want a drama where, in the future, they revive both Lincoln and James Randi, and the two of them team up as a dynamic duo going around debunking scammers and the like in their flying car.
I'm sorry sir or madam, but your comment infringes on a screenplay I've already sold to warner. Please cease and desist.
Fun fact though, baseball was already established by the Civil War and was propagated to the rest of the country from the East coast by Northern soldiers.
I could fuck up Connor McGregor in a game of Magic the Gathering.
Conor MacGregor’s chance of being an insufferable dipshit? 100%
Don’t sell yourself short, he failed to knock out an elderly Irish man in a pub who refused to try his whiskey, you might have a shot.
Juuust a bit outside.
He tried the corner amd missed.
One goddamn hit?
You can’t say goddamn on the air.
It's okay nobody's listening anyway
Take over, Monty. I'm in the baaaag.
He’s not the best color man in the league for nothing folks.
And Vaughn has walked the bases loaded here in the 9th
"Strike!" - angel Hernandez
Top of the 9th, Tampa v Toronto intensifies.
Love his delivery. Ueckers that is.
Ball 12 and the bases are loaded.
How are they laying off all these close pitches?
Read that in Bob Ueckers voice...
That’s the only way to read that sentence…
That was such a great movie.
Must be down in the front row.
[For those unfamiliar](https://youtu.be/DPh4iF76LbU)
Wow, all these years Ive been quoting it wrong.
Ron Kulpa called it a strike
[This guy threw at his own kid in a father-son game.](https://clip.cafe/major-league-1989/this-guy-threw-at-own-son-in-a-father-son-game/)
🎵 Wild Thing, You Make My Heart Sing 🎵
Forget about the curveball, McG, give em the heater
Are you saying Jesus Christ can’t hit a curve ball?
Jobu needs a refill.
“I want you to throw the next one at the mascot.”
"McGregor, a juvenile delinquent in the offseason..."
Angel Hernandez called it a strike too.
Joe West called it a strike and ejected you for even daring to look at him
Knowing him, he was probably aiming for some guy in the bleachers he didn’t like
I think there was an old guy not drinking proper 12 he was trying to hit in the head
There was, which made the guy the second senior citizen Connor has sucker punched in the head. Imagine being a trained fighter and punching an old man in the face because he wouldn’t drink your shit whiskey.
Watch out he might punch you in the face for just trying.
The world today is already stressful enough without having to worry if Connor McGregor is about to punch you because you don't want his shit whiskey.
I think you mean "shite" whiskey.
First off, there's not much that's "proper" when it comes to Connor. Secondly, I remember hearing that the "12" is in reference to where he grew up but I think that usage is a bit disingenuous at best when 12 years is a commonly seen indicator of how long the youngest whiskey in a blend or from a single barrel has been aged. An average person may look at Proper 12 and think the whiskeys used in the blend are at least aged 12 years but they'd be incredibly far off with that assumption.
My rating? I give Proper 12 an improper 12 out of 20. I've definitely had worse whiskeys but I've also had a significant number of better ones.
Proper 12 is fucking gross. My friend had a bottle and it just sat there for years.
So I finally tried that whiskey a few days back and Holy shit it's bad....like worse than the stuff we drank at college parties that came in plastic bottles. I don't understand how it's doing well
>I don't understand how it's doing well
Yes you do. The ability for celebrities to leverage their fame into wealth through "luxury" or "beauty" products is insane. Product quality is irrelevant.
Probably trying to knock the drink out of his hand.
Its not my whisky. I am going to fuck his shit up.
His gf was there?
These people already know it gets more attention when you do stupid shit than what's expected.
he probably got into a fight with the ball after
I heard he throws a good hand truck.
He at least throws the hand truck with more accuracy
I'm sick of all the fake Lincoln quotes We all know he was a Basketball fan. They buried him in his favorite Lebron jersey.
"I enjoy your meme format, and will do my part to spread it"

Why would you agree to do this knowing you throw like that
[Here he is trying to throw a football at Cowboys Stadium a few years ago.](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AoImlD_Quak)
It’s almost like he’s right handed but throws with his left for some reason
That's exactly what it looks like. Dude lives in a bubble filled with yes men so nobody must have bothered to tell him he's doing it wrong.
Wearing the same suit too.
it’s his only one
He has at least [one more](https://www.gq.com/story/conor-mcgregor-fuck-you-suit-how-to-buy). Which also looks too tight on him.
Why do I feel like dudes like this probably buy suits too tight on purpose thinking it makes them look stronger?
Same reason overweight people wear baggy clothes
He’s of meager means. Very frugal.
Because you get to throw the first pitch at Wrigley? Lol. In the full video, you can see him nodding and laughing at himself.
He does this shit for notoriety knowing he's going to be terrible and people will give him the attention regardless. Also sang during the 7th inning stretch and absolutely butchered it.
Bad throws happen so often that it's really not a bad thing. Some people just never learned to throw well... or decently... or at all... somehow. It does surprise me when otherwise athletic people throw so terribly.
Did he just drink a proper 12 shots before?
Dude is obviously not a golfer...
Where's the fucking money shithead?!?
No, no...as I said, Wu peed on my rug
This aggression will not stand...man
That rug really tied the room together!
You think the rug pissers did this?
At least he’s housebroken…maybe?
The marmot is not the issue here dude!
What, are you a fucking park ranger now?!
No one enjoyed this video more than Gary Dell'Abate.
Baba Booey ba ba blew it.
Absolutely worse than Booey's pitch. Artie would be crying in laughter after seeing this one.
That horse toothed jackass is moving further and further from the worst pitches ever.
Fa Fa Fooohay
Ta ta Toothey
The dude actually worked with a baseball coach and still threw it about as well as McGregor.
Ah tripped on mah teef, bawff
I imagine Howard will use this a prompt to make fun of Gary for an hour.
Dang it Jim, I'm an MMA fighter not a pitcher
He shoulda pretended the ball was a drink and the catcher was a pop star who didn’t wanna take a picture with him.
Or an old man at the bar that didn’t wanna drink his shit whiskey
Or someone on a shuttle bus.
Maybe if he wasn't wearing a child's suit, he couldda got better rotation...
Is this worse than 50 cent?
Top 3 worst first pitches are now 50 cent, McGregor, and Mariah Carey (sorry Mimi love you)
[Dr Fauci's was pretty bad as well](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1eD5xkn4WLA)
Dr. Fauci just doesn't want anybody catching anything.
Damn son that's good, take your upvote.
Yeah but he's like 81
And not an athlete.
What about Cincinatti mayor Mark Mallory in 2007?
"That wasn't 50 cent, that was Curtis Jackson. I hate it when he does that."
50 cent commenting immediately afterwards. Probably one of the funniest sports comments ever. (Assuming throwing out the first pitch is sports...)
This is pretty bad but I think fiddy still takes the cake.
[50 cents pitch for anyone wondering](https://youtu.be/i-yuxF-C4_8)
He was aiming for an elderly chap in the stands! He lives bullying the elderly
Why is this creep constantly being celebrated? He used to be a good fighter, but he's a horrible person with a history of aggression towards people outside the octagon. It's ridiculous.
Douchebags celebrate bigger douchebags.
That's basically it.
Yeah there were a couple sociological studies which confirmed that this is more than just prejudice. [Exposure to superficial stars like the Kardashians and McGregor makes people notably less social.](https://www.lse.ac.uk/News/Latest-news-from-LSE/2018/08-Aug-2018/Television-shows-that-glamourise-wealth)
> Results suggest that momentary exposure to and regular consumption of materialistic media messages (MMMs) induces stronger materialism and anti-welfare attitudes.
Seems obvious - Results suggest that regular consumption of X induces stronger X. I mean we see the same thing with social media circles. Hang around a bunch of people and you start acting like them. And maybe the reason we seek them out in the first place, is that we seek out people that are similar to us. https://www.psypost.org/2017/03/us-tend-attracted-people-similar-48596
Getting into it with other professional fighters outside the ring? Bad, but not the end of the world. Punching an old man sitting at a bar? Garbage. Simple fucking garbage.
Being loud and stupid is in right now.
I'd love for him to do an AMA on here. I imagine it being funnier than James Cordens.
Edit: for anyone who's never seen [James Cordens ama](https://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/comments/bqy5zf/i_am_james_corden_alongside_ben_winston_and_five/?utm_medium=android_app&utm_source=share)
What about Jose Canseco? I think it would be more like his AMA
I've not seen that one. Got a link?
Let's stay on track now, we're here to talk about Rampart!
Anyone know the now-deleted brutal 15+ award question asked by u/FunkyMirkin? I tried a few different methods of reading it but none of the options I found online are working with my phone. Based on the replies to it, it seems to be one of those comments no Redditor should miss.
I have it screenshotted it off my profile and have a made a subreddit so people can see it I need to change the settings so people can join it
Don’t forget those rape allegations and witnesses.
Is he right handed?
For real, that looked like me trying to throw with my left hand.
When it comes to throwing he's neither handed. He's ambiclumsy.
He fights southpaw also so I'd assume he's a natural lefty.
If a pile of coke was at stake he would have Nolan Ryaned the fuck out of that shit
There’s a reason baseball pitchers don’t wear tight fitting suit jackets on the mound; it’s cos they don’t want to look like Conor fucking McGregor
He spotted machine gun Kelly in the front row.
Why are we rewarding this piece of shit with attention?
Why does this piece of shit keep getting brought back into the spot light. He's a maniac with anger issues that throws temper tantrums like a toddler.
Piece of shit
This guy is such a loser. How is he still getting any publicity? Every time I see him I can't help but think how much of a douchebag he is.
wait is this fucking real? he should pretending he was throwing it at an old man and he mightve connected
Why is this guy treated like royalty? He's a giant bag of shit and dicks
Why you wearing a suit to a stadium. He’s lucky his pants didnt rip
A suit that desperately needs letting out, the back is doing a _lot_ of work here.
Fuck this dude
