She admits to having been “pretty drunk” before awkwardly hurling the first pitch at a Los Angeles Dodgers game
Move over, Clayton Kershaw — the Dodgers found a new ace, and this one covered Sports Illustrated first.
Chrissy Teigen was asked to throw out the first pitch at Tuesday night’s baseball game between the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Los Angeles Angels, but apparently she did so while under the influence.
“Crap I’m pretty drunk,” the model tweeted shortly before taking the mound to hurl out an awkward first pitch.
Fans brought out their cameras and recorded Teigen’s off-balance toss. It was just a bit outside.
Her throw lacked the cool, effortless grace of Jeff Bridges‘ “Big Lebowski”-style bowl on Saturday, and barely managed to edge out 50 Cent’s embarrassing throw at a Met’s game in May. Either way, it didn’t stop Dodgers catcher Drew Butera from giving her a celebratory hug afterward.
Teigen’s uniform included the world’s shortest shorts and a custom Dodgers jersey. One astute Twitter user explained:
Christine Teigen (@chrissyteigen) is here, wearing jersey 40 w/ the name “Nugz” because “40 Nugz” is her favorite drunken food at McDonald’s

We wonder whether she wound up sharing those nuggets with her mom, who was even more intoxicated according to Teigen’s tweets:
My mom is bombed
