Video: A 'Pretty Drunk' Supermodel Threw The First Pitch At A Dodgers Game
Sure, drinking beers and watching a baseball game may be America's favorite pasttime, but we have to give supermodel Christine Teigen (who also happens to be John Legend's wife) kudos for taking up a notch. She threw the first pitch at a Dodgers game in L.A. last night drunk. And it was pretty awesome.
It was probably a sign of great drunken things to come when she tweeted out about three hours before the game about her libations intake:
But she wasn't alone when she was getting tipsy. She also has her pretty cool dad to thank. She Instagrammed this photo a few hours before her pitch as well with this caption: "Dad making birthday margaritas like only dad can!! I love you dad, happy birthday!!!!"
And we fell in love with Teigen when she explained to the crowd why her Dodgers jersey had "Nugz" written on it with the number 40: "Forty nuggets at McDonalds is my favorite junk food. My husband gave me the name 40 Nugz as my drunken rapper name."
In the video below, you can see Teigen give a pouty drunk kissy face at the 0:20-minute mark. She then gives a little sideways rump shake and then actually does a pretty good job with the pitch (better than we would've imagined with a billion margaritas in). Then she runs and jumps in catcher Drew Butera's arms and rolls around on the ground (still on the field) with a woman. It was magical.
