Kelly Ripa Questions Athletic Ability, Turns Down First Pitch at Mets GameWhile Christian Slater recalled throwing a first pitch at a Dodger's game, Kelly Ripa was suddenly reminded why she turned down an offer to do the same for the Mets on 'Live With Regis and Kelly' (weekdays, syndicated).

Slater said he practiced for months and somehow managed to successfully lob the ball over home plate. "I practiced for, like, two months before. I was terrified. You go out there, stand in the center of the mound and everybody's looking at you," he said. "That was a big moment. Getting it across the plate is a big deal."

Then, Ripa explained how husband Mark Consuelos talked her out of throwing the first pitch at a Mets game by calling her athletic ability into question. To prove his point, Consuelos had Ripa throw a practice pitch which widely missed its mark.

"There was a reason my mother prevented me from sports and I now realize she recognized an incapability in me," admitted Ripa.
