This is Tom Willis. He was born without both arms. He’s trying to throw out the first pitch at every baseball stadium in the country.
I’ve tried that twice. First time? Fail. Second? Epic fail. And although I’ve got both arms, it takes super human strength to get the ball away from the gravitational pull of my giant head.
Note to “guy with no arms,” as well as “guy who climbs Mt. Everest without legs” etc. I’m aware that I’m blessed, and I’m wasting my life, and I still complain as if I’ve got real problems. But I prefer to live with my head in the sand. So, stop it.
Here’s my message to kids: If you’re born without arms, you might be able to try and throw the first pitch at a baseball field, but you won’t make it to the plate, either. You know why? No arms.
