    errbudy says hitting an MLB pitcher is the hardest thing to do in sports. I've stood in front of the net before and it's bigger than it looks on TV. These guys can basically knock a flea off the goalie mask if they want and I'm thinking stopping a shot may be harder. What says you?


    No pole cause FUCK YOU!

    Don't be stupid.

    Hitting a baseball is one of the hardest things to do.

    Catching the puck would almost be natural.

    Most goals come from rebounds and they wear pads. Get hit in the ribs with a 90 mile an hour fast ball and tell me whats harder.

    Why does dawg hate you?

    I've always agreed with this statement. Maybe you're right.

    You think that matters?

    The pitcher can send you a letter via USPS stating he will throw you a fastball, call you for 3 days until you receive the letter to tell you he's going to throw a fastball, and then at the park, he can tell you all day up to the time he's throwing the pitch that he's going to throw the fastball, and you will still swing 3 minutes late.

    Stevie busting out the hole in one. Interesting. I'm 100% percent sure I could hit a pitch before I get a hole in one.
