The Right Stuff

Illustration for article titled The Right Stuff

We love this video of 93-year-old Loretta Dolan throwing out the first pitch at Wrigley Field. The lifelong Cubbies fan not only performs her underhand toss very creditably (she used bowling technique) but confesses that she looks forward to doing it again. And the players look so cute giving her hugs! Even South-Siders can't fail to be moved. Click the picture to see the clip.

@I'm Chuck Bass: Zambrano (¡te amo!), Dempster, De Rosa, Geovany Soto, Ryan Theriot (THE RIOT!), Aramis Ramirez, Derrek Lee (classiest guy on the team), Fukudome, Reed Johnson, Soriano (when he's not hurt), Jim Edmonds (now accepted, forgiven of his past Cardinal sins, at least in my book), Ted Lilly, Jason Marquis, Kerry Wood, Carlos Marmol, Scott Eyre, Michael Weurtz, Bobby Howry, Ronny Cedeño, Henry Blanco (Hank White), Daryle Ward, Mike Fontenot, and sometimes from AAA Eric Patterson, Micah Hoffpauir, Sean Marshall, Rich Hill, and Matty Murton (sexay ginger!). All off the top of my head, no other website open. And yes, I also go to AAA games whenever the Iowa Cubs wander around these parts of the woods. Because, unlike others, I actually love the team and watch every broadcast I can.
