Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis Invade Chicago Cubs Game
America’s pastime — the yawn-enducing sport of baseball — has finally figured out a way to make the batting lineup announcements anything but horribly dreadful. Recently, comedians Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis were present at a Chicago Cubs home game, where they not only hilariously delivered the team’s introductions, but also tossed out some pitches.
Oh, they also ate some Chicago-styled deep dish pizza that looked incredibly tasty. Check out the videos below.
Sure, the obvious reason they were there was to promote their newest film ‘The Campaign,’ which is set to hit theaters on Aug. 10th. The duo not only star in the movie but are also producers on the project which pokes fun at small town politics and the election season. But still, fans throughout the stadium were excited and eagerly awaited to hear the Hollywood actors riff.
What started out as a usual reading of the all-star roster turned into a funny bit with each one adding biographical descriptions of the batters. How else would we know that first baseman Anthony Rizzo is “ironically not Italian” or that left fielder Alfonso Soriano was from Edinburgh, Scotland or even that second baseman Darwin Barney and third baseman Luis Valbuena enjoy taking nude walks together on the beach? We had no idea.
Afterwards, ‘The Hangover’ star and the SNL alum took to the mound. Zack’s pitch was a bit high in the middle and Will’s was pretty heated but curved a bit to the right. Maybe the pair should team up for a remake of ‘Major League’ and work on their form on the mound.
