50 Cent's first pitch was probably the worst by a celebrity in a long time— the left-handed rapper's throw at Citi Field on Tuesday night sailed way left of catcher Anthony Recker and nearly nicked a cameraman. His embarrassment didn't end on the field though, as 50 Cent revealed Friday that the cops pulled him over to poke fun at him.
50 Cent was talking about his flub at the beginning of the Pirates-Mets game on "Good Morning America" when he shared the funny anecdote.
"I actually got pulled over by New York City police," the rapper, born Curtis Jackson, explained. "They pulled me over in my car. I said, 'I got my license,' because I was a little nervous they pulled me over, and I was like, 'What did I do?'" more >>
50 Cent had a terrible first pitch at the Mets game against the Pittsburgh Pirates at Citi Field Tuesday night. The left-handed rapper's wind up looked decent, but his aim was way off as the ball sailed far left of home plate.
50 Cent, born Curtis Jackson III in nearby Jamaica, Queens, wore a custom Mets jersey for the occasion with his last name and signature number on the back. Most celebrities' poor pitches end up not making the entire 60-foot distance from the mound to the plate, but 50 did far worse— he missed catcher Anthony Recker by a mile and nearly hit the cameraman.
The "In Da Club" rapper had no choice but to smile and shrug it off. Media outlets, though, had a ball of a time coming up with headlines about 50's horrible pitch. more >>

"We think highly of Garrett as a person and as a football player," Seahawks General Manager John Schneider said in a statement. "The team is committed to supporting Garrett in the months to come and will continue to help him determine his next steps."

Donald Sterling has decided that his estranged wife, Rochelle "Shelly" Sterling, will take over the team and potentially negotiate the forced sale of his basketball team, the LA Clippers, to a new owner. The disgraced NBA owner came under heated fire for telling his ex-girlfriend V. Stiviano not to associate with African-Americans or post pictures of them on her personal Instagram account.
Donald Sterling handing the reins over to Shelly Sterling was his response to NBA Commissioner Adam Silver banning him from the league and demanding his forced sale of the team on April 29. Sterling had until Tuesday, May 26 to respond to the NBA's request, and while before it seemed the NBA owner was intent on legally fighting Silver's ruling, it seems he's had a change of mind, a source told ESPN.
While it is currently against NBA bylaws for Sterling to transfer team ownership, the change could be approved temporarily if she is selling the team. However, Shelly Sterling's lawyers previously stated that she would like to maintain her 50 percent interest in the team, and she has distanced herself from her estranged husband and his racial controversy in the past. more >>
