Bruce Willis didn’t need a sixth sense to figure that Philadelphia fans were booing him on Wednesday.
Sure, he’s a movie star and grew up in nearby southern New Jersey, but the town’s sports loyalists can be tough on anyone, even Santa Claus.
So when the 63-year-old “Die Hard” star threw the ball on a bounce to home plate in the ceremonial first pitch before the Phillies-Brewers game, some of the crowd booed.
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
