A 101-year-old grandma named Kitty Cohen (top-notch grandma name, by the way) threw out the first pitch at yesterday's Blue Jays game. She made the most of her opportunity.


Usually, there's a palpable fear hanging over the poor schmuck who has been chosen to throw out the first pitch. It's an exciting moment, to be sure, but most people just want to get the ball out of their hands and get the whole thing over with without embarrassing themselves. Ladies that are 101 years old don't have to worry about things like shame, though, so Kitty threw some old-timey swag into her windup and milked the moment for all it was worth. From now on, only old ladies should be allowed to throw out first pitches.
