mr_t_wrigley_field.jpgmr_t_first_pitch.jpgMr. T, the enigmatic Chicago-born actor/wrestler/boxer/tough guy, made Memorial Day 2009 a particularly memorable one with his appearance at Wrigley Field.

The main attraction last night at Wrigley was the Cubs-Pirates game, but apparently no one told that to the Mr. T, who unapologetically wore American-themed Zubaz pants in front of 38,942 Wrigley faithful.

He was there to toss the first pitch and sing "Take Me out to the Ballgame" during the seventh inning stretch. Perhaps cognizant of the fact the Cubs were facing their eighth straight loss, Mr. T made the most of his time in the limelight.

I wouldn't say that Mr. T completely botched the seventh inning stretch for fear that if we ever met he would punch me. But where does Mr. T's performance last night rank along with the likes of Mike Ditka, Ozzy Osbourne and, recently, Denise Richards? We'll let you be the judge:

Mr. T is the man. What a guy! i have him as the voice on my GPS even. There's a company that doe real celebrity voices for GPS, they have people like Dennis Hopper, Burt Reynolds, that sexy one from Sex and the City... and of course Mr. T. It's so funny, "Turn left fool..." I think the site is called Navtones. Check it out if you like T.

You out!

Mr. T bagged it.

Cub - a-Flubs best they can do it borrow a Southside guy and WhiteSox fan to try and beat their curse. Mr 'T' only brings bad KARMA to the Wrigleyville scene

Mr. T doesn't bring bad karma. Mr. T brings PAIN!

The Cubs have another "goat curse" in Mr. T for the simple fact he is wearing Mr. Cub Ernie Banks #14 jersey. Of all the numbers how can they let him wear that one?

Hey, I was at the game, and to get it right --- Mr. T is from the Westside --- but it was all in good fun!!!
