Snoop Dogg threw a pretty good first pitch last night

Snoop Dogg threw out the ceremonial first pitch at last night’s White Sox-Twins game in Chicago and actually showed off a pretty decent arm once he was done mugging for the cameras:

    Obviously he and Lincecum have been spending a lot of time togehter. You know, to work on the fundamentals.

      LOL

        You get a bunch of thumbs up for laughing out loud. That makes me laugh out loud a little. Is that a lil lol? Or do I just write it in lower-case to show a smaller laugh versus a bigger capital LOL? I know the usage of “a” versus “an” but I’m not so good with new-age acronyms.

      Do you mean a strizzle, my nizzle?

    I thought it was a bit high.

      That pitch contained no seeds, stems nor sticks. Pure chronic.

    Who cares? Pitches ain’t sh*t to Snoop Dogg.

    Any reason why a guy from Long Beach, CA is throwing out the first pitch at a White Sox game?

    • cosanostra71 - May 25, 2012 at 12:27 PM

      because.

    Love snoop but really, this is NBC sports headline? C’mon man.

    And throwing it to a guy from Lakeland, FL. At least Chris Sale is built like Snoop. Those two made an hilarious “separated at birth-reunited” photo opp.

    It’s “a hilarious.” Sorry, but that drives me nuts and my grammar policing comes out. The rule goes, if the word in question begins with a vowel sound phonetically, then use “an.” The precedent is not set by what word actually begins with, vowel or otherwise. When an acronym, you it is right either way in certain cases.

    “I was involved in a RTA” is correct b/c you can read that as “Road Traffic Accident.”

    “I was involved in an RTA” is correct b/c you can read it as just the acronym, which begins with “ar” sound, thus “an” is used.

    Okay, I’ll take my douchey grammar police hat off now, but when folks say “an historical” it drives me nuts, b/c they’re trying to be right, when they could not be more wrong. That said, “an hour” from now works, b/c it’s got the vowel sound, not a hard “h” sound.

      Yeah, I’ve never understood “an historian”. Wait, wait, how does that work?

      • El Bravo - May 25, 2012 at 1:24 PM

        I can’t tell if that was a serious question, but I’ll assume it was.

        Historian begins with hard H sound, not a vowel sound, thus use “a”.

        Hour begins with soft H sound, begins with ahhh, a vowel sound, thus use “an”.

      • umrguy42 - May 25, 2012 at 4:25 PM

        No, it was a serious question. I’ve seen “an historian” used on occasion, and gone “wtf?”. Not sure what the thumbs down are for, guys.

    • lionsplayoffs - May 25, 2012 at 4:10 PM

      I’ve been having the “an historical” and “an historic” argument since I was born. The H is hard, mean you use “a” not “an.”

      • El Bravo - May 25, 2012 at 4:33 PM

        Truf.

    If a guy from LA wants to throw out a first pitch at a Chicago game, well, OK.

    But why the hell was he wearing Mardi Gras beads?!?

    • El Bravo - May 25, 2012 at 4:33 PM

      so ladies would show him their boobies?

    • kiwicricket - May 25, 2012 at 4:34 PM

      Those are his precious jewels, Betty
