    Sadly, I might have trouble throwing a baseball 40 yards.

    Me to.
    But I left the voting on this poll anonymous so those of us who lack the proper throwing technique don't have to be embarrassed by our answers.

    Today...not a chance. In my youth I could chuck it about 50 yards. Not bad, but certainly not good enough for any scout to turn their head.
    Definitely not the distance of Uncle Rico tossing that ball over the mountains.

    Are you trying to find events for the first annual Gopherhole picnic?

    So, I read this classic poll/post about 4 beers into a relaxing evening. It motivated this 54 year-old fat guy in sandals to go out into the street in the dark, and proceed to chuck (poorly) a souvenir Gophie football across the font lawns of the neighbors. Four tries. My dog loved it. Couldn't throw a good spiral. Sadly, I only threw about 35 yards by counting sidewalk blocks. Oh well...

    I'm not even sure I could throw it 20 yards. I can throw a baseball about 275 feet but I can barely throw a football.

    My baseball throwing technique was never right. I put in a ton of effort throwing and could never get the ball to sail. Must be bad technique.

    If you wore white New Balance sneakers, as any self respecting middle-aged dad should, you would have thrown 40 for sure.
