If you thought the first pitch was bad, wait until you see these puns
Rapper Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson threw one of the all-time bad first pitches in MLB history last night against the Pirates, joining a lowlight reel that includes Carly Rae Jepsen, John Wall, Cincinnati mayor Mark Mallory and Carl Lewis.
Unfortunately, writers and bloggers proved they weren't much better at making hip hop-related puns.
First, video of the failed first pitch and the puns that followed:
"There's no way 50 Cent gave it his 100%."
"Pitchin' ain't easy."
-New York Daily News
"50 Cent was on the mound, but not on the money."
"You can find him in the clubhouse ... humiliated on a national level -- because Tuesday night 50 Cent may have thrown out the worst first pitch in MLB history."
"He can throw beats but he can’t throw balls."
-The Sydney Morning Herald
"50 Cent certainly didn’t party like it was his birthday Tuesday night at the Mets-Pirates game."
-Fox 59 Indianapolis
"You can find 50 Cent in da club, but you can find his first pitch at Tuesday night's Mets game way outside the club somewhere."
-The Today Show
"50 Cent may be a P-I-M-P, but a major league pitcher, he is not."
"If there's one thing we learned Tuesday, it's the 50 Cent should stay "In Da Club" and off the diamond."
-Newark (N.J.). Star-Ledger
"Rapper 50 Cent may have sold tons of records and been shot nine times, but his street cred veered off course Tuesday night in New York."
"One of 50 Cent's "21 Questions" should have been, 'How do you throw a baseball?'"
