George R.R. Martin Throws First Pitch At Baseball Game

george-rr-martin-throws-first-pitch.jpg

This is a short (and shaky) video of George R.R. Martin throwing out the first pitch at an Albuquerque Isotopes minor league baseball game. You don't actually get to see where the pitch lands, but I get the feeling George made the right decision pursuing writing instead of baseball. Also, I like how all ten people in the stands literally give zero shits about George's pitch. "Since when does the Kool-Aid Man wear a hat?" I imagine some jerk asking between bites of a boiled hotdog. I hope you get hit with a fly ball when your head is turned.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to Lindby, who pointed out that, amazingly, nobody was killed.

    did he kill it?

  • Warren

    There actually is a real baseball team named the Isotopes. And a quick Google search suggests that this may be the only one.

  • Luka Mlinar

    Better than 50 cent.

    Blind people can throw better then him, so it's obvious that Santa Clause throws better too. (Don't tell me you've never seen the resemblance between GRRM and Santa)

  • Harold_Finch

    There he is, probably used Sean Bean's head to, the Goblin!

  • Superior_Joe

    "Hey you baseball guys like books right?"

  • zin

    Now if only his books were as quick & concise as that pitch... I'm surprised he didn't drag it on by force of habit.

    And that's why we don't have the last book yet...

    i thought there were going to be more than 7? or did spellcheck mess with "latest" (that happens to me sometimes too)

  • Riz

    Ummm.... Latest? Not spellcheck this time I just fudged it, lol

  • wrysaryu

    i have never understood why this is still such a thing "lets do a publicity stunt to sell tickets. i know lets get someone that has no relation to the game, team or anything sports related to throw a ball"

    how many players died?

  • Guest

    Its right in the article. "amazingly, nobody was killed."

  • Captain Matticus, LP Inc.

    They're all pretty nameless, so all of them. I think that even the baseball died, too.
