Charlie Sheen Wants To Throw Out First Pitch In World Series For Cleveland
It may be time to retire a pointless baseball tradition, simply because it's really getting annoying. It used to be that throwing out the first pitch at baseball games was done by Presidents, and in a dignified manner -- from the stands. Now we see dinosaurs are doing it, and if I have to endure another Star Wars character I'm going to punch every nerd in the world.
Charlie Sheen, who played Ricky "Wild Thing" Vaughn in 1989's Major League, said today that he'd "be honored" to throw out the first pitch in Game 1 of the World Series in Cleveland. Of course the Indians didn't ask him -- the response came because a few people on Twitter suggested it.

No Charlie, we don't want to see another celebrity with no ties to the home team except that he made a movie. We've seen quite enough of you already, thanks (remember the Violent Torpedo of Truth Tour?).
Game 1, Cleveland: Sheen.
Game 2, Cleveland: Peter Billingsly (the kid from A Christmas Story).
Game 3, Chicago (probably): Thomas Ian Nicholas (the kid from Rookie of the Year).
Game 4, Chicago: Robert DeNiro (Al Capone in The Untouchables).
Game 5, Chicago: Lassie.
Game 6, Cleveland: Khloe Kardashian.
Game 7, Cleveland: Billy Bush.
We'll tolerate a first pitch if it's, like, the oldest living Dodgers fan, or the guy who invented penicillin. But Sheen for Sheen's sake is just pointless and wrong. Besides, if anyone from the Major League trilogy deserves it, shouldn't it be Bob Uecker?
