Mayor Mallory, A Good Sport

Did you see Mayor Mark Mallory on Ch 5 this morning, talking about what was probably the worst ceremonial first pitch in Opening Day history?

During a traffic segment with Pete Scalia he said: "There's no excuse. It was a terrible throw, a terrible throw. So here's what I'm going to do. I'm going to try out for the Bengals next week, and if that doesn't work, I'm going to do Dancing with the Stars."

Best part of the Mayor's throw was the umpire standing on the first base line immediately gave the signal that Mallory was tossed from the game.

Anyone get footage of the ump's call?

I just loved the Mayor's endearing up-frontness about it all. I have a soft spot in my heart for the man. He didn't run; he didn't hide; he didn't make excuses. He just stood up straight and took it like a man.

God bless him...
