Yeah, that headline is a bit misleading.

But only slightly.

Brian Hickey of Deadspin passes along this video of former NFL quarterback Brett Favre throwing out the first pitch at a college baseball game Wednesday evening between the Southern Mississippi Golden Eagles and the Tulane Green Wave.

Even our good friends at ProFootballTalk are sick of Favre stories by now, but the quick video is worth watching. Favre grabs the ball, heads in front of the mound and delivers a low heater all in one motion.

He’s like the Happy Gilmore of the … eh, nevermind. Now back to your regularly scheduled baseball blogging.

    Oh, for corn’s sake, next thing you know he’ll be dealing knuckleballs for Aaron’s Twinkies!

      Not a bad idea considering there’s nowhere to go but up with that pitching crew.

    I am sure someone has mentioned it before, but please don’t ever link ProFootballTalk on this site Drew.

      Pssst: there’s always a link to ProFootballTalk on this site! Have a gander up at the top bar there, yeah, right there.

    These headlines about Favre are great! I have a few you could go with while we all watch the heated labor disputes go on:

    Favre spotted at a local Steak and Shake going to the bathroom.
    Favre spotted putting on his Wranglers, and walking his dog.
    Favre spotted washing his truck.

    When is it going to end with this guy?

    How did Ed Werder or Sal Pal miss this breaking, lead story?

    Good that the headline didn’t read “Brett Favre spotted e-mailing pics of his package in Mississippi town.”

    Any chance he grabbed his cell phone and snapped a picture holding his ball before he threw it? Any good or was that too obvious?

      Pretty good. And better for the citizens of this town if all he snapped a picture of was the baseball.

      But, we know Brett better than that, don’t we?
