Did Charlie Sheen Just Nominate Himself To Throw Out A First Pitch In The World Series As Rick 'Wild Thing' Vaughn?
Look, I'm pretty sure that Charlie Sheen just nominated himself to throw out the first pitch of the World Series unprovoked because he could use some good pub after that little "I slept with 1,000 women while I knowingly had AIDS" snafu. However, now that he did, this absolutely has to come to fruition. I know the MLB doesn't care about ratings since every postseason game has ended as the sun was coming up, but hitting his music and having 'Wild Thing' take that lonnnng trek to the mound would be must watch television that would hit everyone with a goddamn pulse directly in the feels. There's no better promotional tactic than nostalgia, and just thinking about Ricky gassing up "the terminator" for old times sake already has me setting the DVR.
Also of note, isn't it a little bit ridiculous that Charlie Sheen's ACTUAL life was more a shit show than the fictional life of a pitcher nicknamed 'Wild Thing' whose performance in the California Penal League was responsible for him getting his start in the Majors? Shit, Charlie Sheen probably had to be locked in a room without drugs and hookers for a month just so that he had a clear enough head to play a womanizing drunk who was stealing cars well before he stole our hearts. Chuck was out there contracting HIV by drinking tiger blood (and raw-dogging whores) while the worst thing Rick Vaughn ever did was unknowingly bang out his teammate's wife. With what we know now, they probably had to give Charlie Sheen a goddamn exorcism just so he could get into character as the over-the-top loose cannon in an 'R' rated movie. If those two went out for a night on the town it would ultimately culminate in Charlie Sheen calling Rick Vaughn a pussy, slapping the skull-and crossbones right off his glasses, and screeching away on his Harley.
That said, I have no interest in seeing Charlie Sheen throw a baseball so the only way I'm on board with this is if he gets zig-zags shaved into his head and channels the chutzpah of the sum' bitch that walked Beck to get to Parkman.
