GI Joe character Snake Eyes throws out first pitch in Oakland

Before Tuesday night's Blue Jays-Athletics game in Oakland, the ceremonial first pitch was thrown out by GI Joe character Snake Eyes, complete with his ninja suit and sword. As someone who loved GI Joe as a kid (and I had something like 50 action figures), seeing this was pretty cool, even if the new series of live action movies aren't great.

Snake Eyes proceeded to point his sword at Grant Balfour (recieving the pitch), spin around in a circle, and fire a strike to home plate. I was more of a Storm Shadow fan (even if he was a Cobra member), but seeing a part of my childhood throw out a first pitch was awesome.
