>PhillieBot Bounces First Pitch, Will Replace Joe Blanton

Posted: April 24, 2011 by Keith Stone in baseball, Phillies, Philly sucks


When I heard that a robot was going to throw out the first pitch at a baseball game, I thought it was pretty cool. I assumed it was one of those crazy Japanese robots that can walk and fall in love and stuff. Then, I found out it was going to throw out the first pitch at a Phillies game and was named PhillieBot. My hopes were considerably lowered. PhillieBot turned out to basically be a catapault, which would have been cool if this was the Dark Ages. Somebody should have told the dorks at UPenn. It couldn’t even reach the plate. This seriously may have been the lamest thing I’ve ever seen besides all the Eagles fans who think their team is going to win the Super Bowl every year. Still better than Carl Lewis though. At least we know robots won’t be taking over the world for a while.
