One of my life goals is to throw the first pitch at a Dodgers baseball game. I daydream about it regularly, actually. But the nerves! What if I miss the catcher or, gasp, one-bounce it across home plate? I don't think I could go home after that.

And I was okay with C-list and D-list celebrities beating me out to my dream but tonight a freaking robot, a non-human dammit, tossed out the first pitch at a Phillies game against the Brewers. Called PhilliRobot and created by two UPenn Kids, the robot can hit 40mph on the radar gun. And the robot doesn't have to deal with those weak human emotions like I do! Un-fair!


Too bad that stupid robot couldn't get the ball over the plate. He one bounced it, hah! Like my sister would! What a loser. Watch it:
