Mrs. Carter: Juan Pablo Galavis was at times intent on referring to the home of the Miami Marlins as his “office” on “The Bachelor” earlier this year … so maybe what he did on Tuesday was just an ordinary day at it. While attending Marlins Park for a game with his girlfriend Nikki Ferrell (who is enjoying some sort of real private time with him), Juan Pablo threw out a ceremonial first pitch.
So how did Juan Pablo actually do with it? Let’s just say that he was off by a little bit. The best part of this entire video is the terrified reaction of the guy with a camera as the ball comes flying near him. We really can’t pick on Juan Pablo too hard for this, though, mostly because we have a feeling that we wouldn’t have done any better (probably worse since those who know us know that we consider video games a sport).
The Marlins have had a rough go of things as of late for a variety of different reasons. First of all, they had to deal with all of the trades, the expensive seating, and that sculpture that we’re completely clueless about. Then, they had a guy on a reality dating show calling the place his “office.” Then, you had team president David Samson being the first person voted out of the new “Survivor” season. Not a good past year for the Marlins.
Is there a silver lining in all of this? Sure! The Marlins ended up winning their game against the Colorado Rockies 4-3. Maybe Juan Pablo is some sort of secret weapon or good luck charm. One thing that we do know for sure is that this was probably a better day than when Juan Pablo allegedly had a drink thrown in his face.
