Macklemore threw out the ceremoninal first pitch before last night’s Mariners-Yankees game in Seattle and … well, a couple things:

First, he took not one but two selfies on the mound beforehand. And then he actually fired a pretty decent pitch to his catcher, Mariners ace Felix Hernandez.

For some reason MLB.com hasn’t made the video emebeddable, but if you click on the picture you can watch it:

I’m not even going to say anything about his haircut, because I’m an old man and no one cares what I think about haircuts. (Note: It’s a silly haircut.)

The Yankees Twitter account roasts the Red Sox account on the anniversary of “The Steal”

Today is the 13th anniversary of one of the most exciting and iconic plays in postseason history. On October 17, 2004, the Yankees and the Red Sox faced off in Game 4 of the ALCS. The Yankees had a 3-0 lead in the series and held a 4-3 lead in the bottom of the ninth. The Red Sox were three outs from being eliminated by the Yankees. Again.

Kevin Millar led off the inning facing Mariano Rivera and worked the greatest closer in baseball history for a walk. Terry Francona inserted Dave Roberts as a pinch runner. Everyone in the building knew that Roberts had one job: get to second base and scoring position. Despite everyone knowing it was coming, Roberts swiped second base. He’d come around to score, the Sox won the game in 12 innings, would win the next three and the World Series, completing the greatest comeback in postseason history and ending an 86-year championship drought.

Understandably, the Red Sox wanted to remember that wonderful day today. So they tweeted about it:

The Yankees, however, weren’t gonna let that one go by:
