In the top of the first inning against the Atlanta Braves, pitcher Kyle Kendrick gave up a home run. But the home team fans cheered. Not for the other team, but for their own game announcer Tom McCarthy. The late Harry Kalas would be proud.

As the ball sailed to straightaway center field, Tom McCarthy gave his own play-by-play for his own catch. Encouraging him live was retired World Series Champion pitcher Jamie Moyer with follow retired slugger Matt Stairs.

McCarthy caught the ball one handed with his own childhood baseball glove.

Like any good Phillies fan, McCarthy was prodded by Jamie Moyer to reject the baseball as a souvenir because it was hit by the other team. McCarthy obliged albeit as reluctant as any fan he took a breath and then tossed it back into the baseball playing field for the players to retrieve.

Later in the game Tom gushed about the catch, “Jamie made me feel guilty, I had to throw it back!”

It was an amazing TV moment that may mean more of these special type events will be planned by more professional sports teams.

OJ Simpson Reportedly Goes On A Hunger Strike In Prison

OJ1(PCM) Several sources have revealed that OJ Simpson is currently on a hunger strike while incarcerated in a Nevada prison claiming ‘I used to live my way, and now I’m going to die my way”.

This news comes after recent reports about the current state of Simpson’s health and well-being with claims that he is suffering from an inoperable brain tumor and diabetes.

Simpson is currently serving time for kidnapping, assault, and robbery and the sources reveal that he is so depressed that he only wants to ‘sit down in a corner and die’.

Simpson would be eligible for parole in the year 2017 after his appeal for a new trial was rejected last year. It is strongly suspected that he wants to die so that his millions can go to his children. Although Simpson was acquitted of killing his ex-wife Nicole Brown and her friend Ron Goldman in 1994, Goldman’s family were awarded $33 million in a wrongful death civil suit. ‘He can’t give the kids his money while he’s alive without the Goldman family laying claim to it,’ the sources claim. ‘The only way OJ figures he can leave his kids the millions is to kill himself.’

The source goes on to say that Simpson is beginning to lose weight and that guards have been told they are not allowed to revive him should he fall unconscious. So far there has been no word from Simpson’s attorneys about the alleged hunger strike. Before Simpson is eligible for parole, he has to serve another four years of his 33 year sentence at the Nevada prison.

Barbie Poses For Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue

Barbie-SI(PCM) It has recently been revealed that Sports Illustrated has paired up with Mattel and the companies iconic Barbie doll will be gracing the pages of the upcoming Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue in a full editorial spread.

Barbie has certainly tried her had at many different careers over the course of her existence such as being a doctor, a veterinarian, a musician, even a McDonald’s employee, but this will mark the first time that Barbie has ever been a Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model.

For the magazine’s upcoming swimsuit issue, there will be an editorial spread featuring 22 Barbie dolls dressed as past Sports Illustrated Swimsuit models of years past. The feature was photographed by famed sports photographer Walter Iooss Jr.

One of the promotional photos for the upcoming Sports Illustrated Issue feature Barbie donning the same black and white bathing suit she was wearing when she was first introduced to the world back in 1959. Mattel has even launched a Swimsuit Edition Barbie doll that is now available for purchase exclusively at Target.com.

The editorial on Sports Illustrated in part of “Unapologetic” campaign, which seeks to counter criticism that the doll’s impossibly perfect figure gives young girls unreasonable expectations about how their bodies should look.  Although, we have learned that Barbie’s proportions are truly not very realistic. If Barbie were life-size, her measurements would be 39-23-33. She would stand seven feet, two inches tall and have a neck twice the length of a normal human’s neck.

Sports Illustrated is claiming that featuring Barbie in the magazine shows her as an empowered female who is unashamed or her appearance or actions.
