Found April 16, 2013 on It's Always Sunny in Detroit:
Kyle Meinke | MLive.com Former Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson pulled a Denard Robinson last week when he threw out the ceremonial first pitch at Comerica Park before the Blue Jays-Tigers game.  His “pitch” made it about 50 feet (out of 60 feet, six inches) that day.  Despite being known more for his ability to run than pass, it was still an embarrassing effort. On Tuesday, he was invited out to Ray Fisher Stadium on Michigan’s campus to redeem himself prior to the Notre Dame-Michigan game.  In tow were former Michigan teammates Devin Gardner, Taylor Lewan, Jeremy Gallon, Drew Dileo and Elliott Mealer.  They didn’t come to support Robinson but rather ”To make fun of me,” Robinson said laughing, “and see if I actually got it to the catcher this time.” “It feels great,” Robinson, who played center field in high school, said afterward. “I got crap from everybody I know, that knows I play baseball, that knew I could throw the ball. Everybody talked to trash to me, and it’s great to actually throw the ball well.” Robinson will now put his focus on the NFL Draft which will be held April 25-27. He’s expected to be selected anywhere from the third to fifth round as a wide receiver, gadget player. Of course, the team that picks him will use his legs much more so than his arm.
