Gabby Giffords Throws First Pitch, Taunts 50 Cent

Former Congresswoman Gabby Giffords threw out the ceremonial first pitch at the annual Congressional Women’s Softball Game between female members of Congress and female journalists on Wednesday. It was a bittersweet moment for Giffords, who played in the inaugural Congressional Women's Softball Game in 2009. Before the game, she playfully ribbed 50 Cent about his terrible ceremonial first pitch at a Mets game in May. "@50cent, bet you my first pitch will be better than yours was!," wrote Giffords, who on Jan. 8, 2011 was shot along with 18 others at a constituent meeting in Arizona.
