I had to work, and could not attend the game. My roommate Dan went. My editor on the flick I'm working on went. My friend even had tickets to give me because he couldn't make it. And although the Mets lost, I'm most pissed about missing who threw the first pitch.
That's right. My personal hero, Mr. Matthew "I GOT GHOSTS IN MY BEDROOM" McConaughey.
My editor Thomas said he'd never seen anyone so happy to throw a pitch in his life. I think this accurately captures it.
He also, allegedly, couldn't stop high-fiving the catcher afterwards, and was spotted holding up three fingers. This leads me to believe Matty McC was claiming he could get the next batter out. And could fill in for Manny Ramirez.
