M Baseball in my Backyard Tonight

I'm fired up that the Wolverines visit Southwest Florida today to take on the local university - Florida Gulf Coast University.
To make it even better, FGCU has asked me to throw out the first pitch . . and yes I will be sporting maize and blue while on the mound.

This is not as rude as it sounds, I assure you, but it must be asked:

Who are you, and why would you throw out the first pitch at a baseball game?

Not rude at all on your part. I sit in the board for the FGCU athletic department and my company handles all of their sports marketing. They know how big of a Michigan fan I am and I think this is their way of saying thanks for the work I do on behalf of the university.

Little do they know I'm planning on channeling my inner Nuke Laloosh and firing one at the mascot!

I should try to do this when they play Coastal Carolina in two weeks. I've been working at Coastal for 14 months and my office is about 100 yards from home plate of their baseball field.

It's the least they could do after telling during the entire fall that Coastal's FCS football team could beat Michigan.
