Bob Costas Demands Do-Over, Years After Finishing Kindergarten

Like an esteemed line of celebrities before him -- 50 Cent! Carly Rae Jepsen! Miss Texas! -- Bob Costas threw a pretty horrific first pitch at Tuesday’s Cincinnati Reds-St. Louis Cardinals game. But unlike the aforementioned stars, Costas refused to accept the gaffe and insisted on getting another chance.

Just like every kid playing baseball at recess.

Well done, respected and admired grown-up person!


I’m not sure what the rules are regarding the elusive second pitch honors, but I think we should probably pretend this pitch never happened to prevent every star unhappy with his or her attempt to insist on a redo. No one needs to see Mariah Carey.
