Charlie Sheen cracks joke about Dallas Braden on Opening Day
Even Charlie Sheen was in the Opening Day spirit on Sunday. And he had the jokes to prove it.
The famous actor sent a tweet prior to the first game of the 2016 MLB season being played by the Pirates and Cardinals. He was watching ESPN’s coverage and said analyst Dallas Braden resembled Sean Penn from “Carlito’s Way.”
ESPN's opening day…?

I actually like the reference another person made on Twitter saying Braden looked like Jamm from “Parks and Recreation.”
If you can believe it, an Atlanta Braves writer actually made the same joke about Braden a few years ago:

Guess you have to be from a certain generation to fully appreciate the reference.
By the way, while mostly everyone else on the West Coast was just getting up to watch the game, Sheen was probably winding down a wild night and was lucky enough to catch some ball. Or maybe not considering how seriously he says he takes his baseball.
