UPDATED: "I PITY THE PIRATES!"

Those are the words of none other than Laurence "Mr. T." Tureaud, who threw out the first pitch and sang "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" at yesterday's Pirates-Cubs contest. At the conclusion of his seventh-inning serenade, he proclaimed to the denizens of the Windy City that he "pities the Pirates".

Hey T, I love ya, but we're not the ones who've lost eight in a row. I guess we know what a payroll of $135 million and the great Lou Piniella buys you: a 21-22 record and a one-game lead over the Pirates near the end of May.

Full T hijinks at the 1:30 mark:
