U.S. Men's Curling Team Threw Out A Wildly Chaotic First Pitch

Juuuust a bit outside.

The victory lap for the U.S. men's curling team that won a gold medal at the 2018 PyeongChang Olympics still hasn't ended. The team of John Shuster, Tyler George, Matt Hamilton, John Landsteiner and Joe Polo have been honored all across the country since beating Sweden 10-7, in the men's curling final. Their latest appearance was at the Minnesota Twin home opener, Thursday. 

They all threw out the first pitch, in unison, and it didn't go quite as planned. 

Shuster, who threw off the mound missed wide right, which caused a domino effect of Twins players ducking and running from the mis-thrown balls. Then Hamilton took a curling-style approach to his throw – which looked more like he was playing bocce ball.  

Oh and in this same pregame ceremony, a Bald Eagle went after the Seattle Mariners' pitcher: 

What a day in Minnesota.
