Video: Pat Burrell Throws Out First Pitch

Screen Shot 2012-05-20 at 12.19.31 PM

Unfortunately, FOX – the same network that aired an hour's worth of Brits receiving the Champions League trophy yesterday – pissed down its leg and didn’t show us any of Pat Burrell’s retirement ceremony. 

Phillies.com has some video of Burrell throwing out the first pitch, and you can watch it after the jump.

    You really do not have any brain cells dude. The whole world wants to see the Champions League final and only couple thousand of rednecks from philly and south jersey want to see some degenerate throw out a baseball pitch

  2. I’m all about the Phillies, but comparing Burrell’s opening pitch to the celebration of one of the only events in the world bigger than the Super Bowl is way off. Right call on Fox’s part. Now go Phils.

  3. Im sure the rest of the world wants to see some soccer final but aside from you and your friends that play some indoor soccer league, NO ONE in the US cares about soccer. Accept it and get over it.

  4. Kyle, while we may not agree about the appropriate amount of sixers vs flyers coverage at least all of crossingbroad nation can agree that no one in the us gives two fucks about soccer

    you’re wrong. i, and 9 of every 10 people, would rather watch antiques fucking roadshow than soccer. soccer is a European mary sport, with more whining than the NBA, and minimal traction among sports fans in the united states. its less interesting than ice hockey (which is an accomplishment in and of itself). sorry for owning you, and sorry that you like soccer. sorry you probably played soccer at some idiot bucks county no-one-cares high school and think that that means anything. never rub another man’s rhubarb.

  6. The funny thing about this is that FOX has it’s own dedicated soccer channel, so Chelsea’s celebration being carried on the parent channel made no sense whatsoever and, in my opinion, was totally unnecessary.

  7. Soccer is beyond fucking stupid, keep that shit across the pond. Pat the fucking Bat.

  8. Good god, “Kyle.” I would think your pesky janjaweed would have had a better “piece” than your usual cut and paste, which is what now passes off as “journalism” on this shitty “blog” (read: place on internet, xfinity, with ads). Pat and His Bat scored more cornpone than most of us have, based on his good teeth and his TENURE HERE. Nothing more, “Kyle.” YOu should take some of that wildcat education and write something smart. But that would cut into ad rev. Do you ever shoot archery? I bet your day is nothing more than some hot dip at happy hour. nice boy.

  10. Johnny Trust, the Al Bundy of Philadelphia. Lost in his 10 minutes of pee wee football memories. Tough guy ping pong player.
    Be proud Johnny, be proud. lol

  11. Yes, yes. We all know soccer sucks again according to Kyle, because of the backlash he gets when he posts about it…
    Check the TV ratings for the Finals match. I bet if they pushed it the way they pushed the Super Bowl, and threw in the commercial appeal, they’d be quite a bit more comparable than most of you idiots would think.

  12. Fox screwed up a bit. This was a nationally televised game featuring 2 teams from top 5 media markets.
    To you foot fairy-enthusiasts: we get it, soccer is like the biggest sport in the history of ever, world wide. That does not mean we in America have to watch it, nor does it mean that we like it when it gets in the way of our American sports, that we actually like. When soccer gets rid of olympic diving during its games, gets rid of ties, and uses rules that make sense (what the fuck is that extra time put back on the clock after a game is already over?), perhaps Americans will watch. When it gets in the way of something I want to see, I will bitch and moan like I am doing here.

  13. Soccer is not important in the US. C’mon, it’s SOCCER. They should have moved it to FX for the bonus coverage. Of course, we probably would then be bitching about Spider-man or Save The Last Dance being interrupted BECAUSE IT’S SOCCER.
    Disclaimer: I would rather watch the DirecTV help channel over soccer.

  14. Pat Burrell out on the town. $158 bar bill with ZERO TIP….BECAUSE HE CAN!!!!!!
    Taking a page out of my book Pat? Way to go.
