Bruce Willis throwing out first pitch at #Phillies game. He bounced ball to the plate and as Philadelphia will do, he got booed. Borrowing a line from Die Hard “Yippee ki-yay mother bleeper”. Was a great line but not a great throw. @SportsRadioWIP pic.twitter.com/NyKTI6R9Ze

Philly fans are never shy to express their displeasure. After all, this is the fanbase that booed Santa Claus. Nothing is sacred and nobody is off limits when it comes to Philadelphia sports. (RELATED: 76ers To Retain Head Coach Brett Brown)
In this case, Willis definitely deserved the boos. Did he not practice at all before taking the bound?
It sure didn’t look like it.
Let this be a lesson to all celebrities: Don’t come to Philadelphia unprepared and not expect massive backlash.
