We know that NFL refs plan to keep a closer eye this season on player "celebrations," including things like throwing, spiking or spinning the ball after the whistle is blown, 1500 ESPN has reported.

Well, it seems that Green Bay Packers tight end Jermichael Finley is getting his "spiking" out of the way before the regular season begins.

Finley threw out - or better, threw down - the ceremonial first pitch Friday night at Miller Park in Milwaukee before the Brewers game.

If you're looking for a laugh, it's worth watching (especially if you're a Vikings fan).
