  • Most Amazing Windup Ever!

    Cirque du Soleil performer threw out the first pitch at Petco Park on Monday with a most unusual pitch windup anyone has ever seen.

    I was expecting a joke.

    Where I'm from a 'windup' is a joke at the expense of the listener.

    Apparently over there it's something to do with a game of rounders.

    Not a game I know a lot about since in Britain it's only played by girls....

      Here, men play baseball and women play softball.

      Actually, if that guy was pitching in a real baseball game, that would have been called a balk.


      Hmmmm....aren't these British guys?

        Yes, they're all British chaps playing the gentleman's game.

        At school, we boys played football (the proper sort) and cricket.

        The girls played netball (you call it basketball) and rounders (you call it baseball)....

            And most of those "gentlemen" are either toffs with a rod up their asses, or they're narcoleptics, right?

            Football (or soccer, or fútbol, or calcio, or футбол) is a fine sport, one that has brought great joy -- and misery -- to billions, myself included.

            And cricket's a sedative. It's what's prescribed to meth addicts to get them back down.

            Maybe that's been the trade: while we've masculinized your rounders, your popular entertainment is a real hit with the pretentious and poof crowds here. You can always spot one of them, with their fake English accent, and smug air of superiority.

              Amen to that Marc. She thinks now that she has a 'faux' Brit accent she's MUCH better than anyone else alive. What a real witch.

                Lucky there wasn't a man on base. That was clearly a balk.

                    Luis Tiant who played for just about everybody including the Yankees.

                    He would have been completely impossible to hit if only they let him pitch with a cigar in his mouth.




                    I hated him when he was on the Red Sox but put him in pinstripes and he could do no wrong.

                      It's a First Pitch... so, balk is off the table. Pretty impressive and thanks for sharing, Maggie.

                      And, oh yeah, did everyone notice he threw a strike, with a bit of a drop, as well!

                        A balk is a balk. A pitcher can still be called for a balk. Without a base-runner, there is just no penalty.

                        With that amount of physical effort, I would have been highly disappointed if there was not a relative increase in ball rotation and movement!
