John Wall has been waiting nearly two years for this. During the Washington Nationals 2011 season, Wall threw out one of the worst ceremonial first pitches you will ever see. It was so embarrassing that it almost looked like he messed it up on purpose, but he didn’t. On Thursday night, the Washington Wizards star was given a chance for redemption.
He cashed in. Wall’s mechanics still may have looked like the guy’s in that hilarious Volkswagen commercial, but at least he reached the plate this time. As former Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson learned earlier this week with this pathetic toss, reaching the plate is crucial. I wonder if Wall had to convince the Nationals he could really do it this time before they let him come back. Once would have been enough for me.Google+
