As much as I love baseball, after the kneeling stunt pulled yesterday, I think I’m done with it. These entitled, elitists think their opinion matters to me? Nope. Well, it matters that I was sickened by the pandering.
Anyway, if you happened to miss Dr. Anthony Fauci throwing out the first pitch for the Washington Nationals Opening Day game against the New York Yankees, you didn’t miss much. In fact, if you weren’t looking at the whole field, you may not have seen it at all, because not only did it come up short, it was wildly inaccurate.
A lot like Fauci himself.
Fauci’s first pitch did not go to home plate. Let’s say it was juuuuust a bit outside.

Fauci, the head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infections Diseases, is celebrated for maintaining his ability to run considerable distances despite being 79 years old. Well, while the running ability may be there, the throwing ability is definitely not. Fauci is an avid Nationals fan and was very excited about the prospect of throwing out the first pitch.
Maybe he was too excited?
If there’s any consolation, there are no fans at Nationals Park for tonight’s game due to the coronavirus. So, no one was there to laugh at him.
Fauci’s first pitch was about as accurate as he’s been on the pandemic.
