I'd like to see tosses with their primary hand to be sure that these are all guys.

That was FABULOUS!!!

The lack of breasts isn't enough evidence?

I mean, it was dumb but that doesn't mean I didn't laugh.

And since it is a vimeo video...that was really great. nice job. good camera work and song choice.

ha...I made my post before I read the comments on the video. Vimeo...the nicest place on the net.

/yeah yeah, I have said that before.

Something tells me most righties trying to throw left handed would look very similar. It's really quite awkward if you every try it.

ambidextrous? I think not.

Try to use your mouse with your non primary hand...

That's right, you already have...

Tim Tebow is jealous of all these people.

I have always thought that women throw like a man with his other arm.

Or just like someone that has never learned to throw "properly."

I rented a stick shift vehicle in Antigua. I made it about 1/2 mile before I finally went back to the hotel and walked over to the smiling Taxi guy and said "how about you drive so I don't look like an ass or kill someone? Didn't want to end up in the Antiguan prison, he had an odd sense of humor, he drove us past the abandoned US embassy and nearby was the prison. Even from the outside it exuded an air of fark NO IDON'WANNA GO THERE!


Lenny was cool. Sent him christmas cards many times as well as posters of JFK (he was a fan). Mid to late 80's.

Reminded me of my baseball career.

Man, one of my fondest memories was teaching my kids this simple fact when they were about 11-12 years old. We spent a good hour running around the yard, throwing everything everywhere and looking like tards. We laughed and laughed at our hopeless asymmetry.

This throw may explain a lot.

Just sayin'

I had a wicked arm once, but I cut it off with a chainsaw so it couldn't kill me. Unfortunately this just made it more mobile and it ended up poking me in the eyes.

I'll swear, there have been times when I'd have given my left arm to be ambidextrous....
 
2012-07-19 04:20:23 PM  
I'm ambidextrous, and so is my dad and one of my brothers. They were both awesome pitchers in high school cause they'd switch up their throwing arms depending on the batter. I didn't realize people looked like such dorks when the don't have a non-dominant arm.

that pool at the end looks like an inground bathtub.

Most of the problem was those people still put their dominant foot forward when they released with their non-dominant arm. That throws off your whole torso rotation. You get the same effect trying to put your non-dominant leg forward when throwing with your dominant arm.

Best of.

After nearly 20 years of marriage, I can still make my wife laugh by throwing with my non-dominant arm. It's awkwardly fabulous.
 
2012-07-19 05:47:04 PM  
What's wrong with me... was it the music? People were doing silly things and I feel no urge to make fun of them.

I am right handed/footed. When I pitch using my right arm, my left foot steps forward. Have been doing it wrong?

It still happens while standing still or seated.

It's the snap that's missing.
 
2012-07-19 07:08:04 PM  
Anyone know the reason why we throw this way when using the opposite arm?
 
2012-07-19 07:13:10 PM  
Try wiping your ass with the other hand. Yeah, hello Stinky McFecester.

How did you throw before you learned how to throw.
 
2012-07-19 09:29:36 PM  
Most people don't think about the footwork. If you spend five seconds thinking about the mechanics of the entire throw, you don't look nearly as gay.

It's not about the footwork. Try it sitting down.
