VIDEO: GNev Turns To Baseball

Gary Neville was invited to throw the first pitch in the Chicago White Sox versus Oakland Athletics match yesterday.

Wearing a number 2 jersey with his surname on the back, he showed that baseball probably isn’t the sport for him.

    - Why is that babe

    - I want to get a closer look at your face before them boobs smack my face

  15. bchilds says:

    Keep turning away Nev and walk out of the stadium!

    Not a bad move for Bebe, he needs games. I think the lad has something, he’s only 20 so shouldn’t be written off just yet.

  19. JC says:

  20. Dave Malaysia says:

  21. CedarsDevil says:

  22. Fred says:

    Oh I am, mate – I am! :oops:

  23. smartalex says:

    CedarsDevil – Listen to Dave! He’s got your best interests at heart!

  24. Whiteside says:

    Bloody hell Nev! You throw like a girl!

  25. Saad says:

    I was pleasantly surprised by this. Goes to show how far United’s popularity is. Even baseball fans love United!

  26. Zombie Cucumber says:

    As a Yank from Chicago, I can say with some certainty that GNev throws better than half the guys on the White Sox.

  27. Fred says:

    LOL thank you, Zombie :)

  28. Whiteside says:

    Stevie Me could teach him a thing or two about throwing – throwing matches to Chelsea that is.

    Arf arf.

  29. jlethal says:

    nev throws like a girl. and BTW we don’t have baseball “matches”. we call them games

  30. smartalex says:

    Another Whiteside pearler!

  31. Whiteside says:

    Yeah? Well our birds don’t crap out of their fannies.

    Well, most of them.

  32. pucca says:

    He also did a short Q & A the next day to promote the match against the Chicago Fire – unfortunately, the Fire’s home bar is also a scouse refuge, and it was done there instead of at the MUFC bar. Very nice, very articulate.

  33. smartalex says:

    jlethal poisoned himself.
