Next time, Patrice, try a wrist shot

Well-placed sources deep inside Red Sox Nation tell me that Bruins star Patrice Bergeron's turn Saturday at throwing out the first pitch at Fenway Park in Boston was, shall we say, humorous.

Now, I've never studied physics or, for that matter, even mastered geometry, but even the most casual observer can tell from the pitch's initial arc (shown above) that it was going to be a little high and outside.

Well, not only did his throw sail over the catcher's head, but a source (Actually, it was the Ottawa Sun's Bruce Garrioch. Really!) tells me that it was picked up on radar inside Logan International Airport's traffic-control tower and caused a stir as it nearly grazed the International Space Station.

Looking on the bright side, though, Red Sox fans were probably ecstatic in remembering that Patrice signed a five-year deal with the Bruins and not the Olde Towne Team.
