However, the pitch went wrong, almost hitting a fan in the stands. As expected, many people started trolling McGregor online and compared his pitch to the one made by the famous rapper 50 Cent.

This didn’t sit well with the ‘Notorious’, who soon hit back with a witty reply. He said, “The audacity to compare mine with this piss! Picture to picture alone buries this. Mine, bar the accuracy, was the most powerful and fastest first pitch of any of these other athletes/artists over the years. No comparison. Smoke them up and down that Forbes I do.”

He added, “Get Messi over. Smoked. Cris. Smoked. Federer. Doubled. All-time Most Power! Put me in the Wrigley hall of fame for that rocket launch. Besides some of that nice red brick. Mahogany Oak Frame. Wimbledon lines in the grass. The great Wrigley Field reminds me of the grounds on my land in Ireland. Impeccable.”

Anyway, back to the pitch. Venom. Composure. Balance! The gold bar of Patek almost came flying off me. It was that fast and powerful. I’d take it back to @patekphilippe for adjusting but this watch is now discontinued. A rare. I Bought for 80k in Weir’s jeweler of Ireland and today it is worth close to 500k. And going up. Fifty has a nice Hublot too. Big Bang. Small bucks 50cent. One has power. One is the director of media relations for some show called power. You know what it is. The Mac in Chicago! @tidlsport #tidltour
