An Arizona native, @RealGrumpyCat is at Chase Field to “throw” out today’s ceremonial first pitch. 😼 pic.twitter.com/hcSwYgWyqp — Arizona Diamondbacks (@Dbacks) September 7, 2015
What a world, what a world! Wanna know what’s sadder than Grumpy Cat having more followers than all of us combined? The fact that if you don’t know who Grumpy Cat is, then YOU are the loser. Really weird social dynamics getting switched up here in 2015.. and there’s no further proof of that than Grumpy Cat throwing out the first pitch at the Diamondbacks game last night…
She is an Arizona native and her owner is a Diamondbacks fan so it makes sense but even as I’m writing this I am eternally confused. How did this unstoppable force begin anyway?
.@RealGrumpyCat threw out the 1st pitch at the @Dbacks game today! @FOXSPORTSAZ spoke with the cat before the game https://t.co/n2KBJfQclg — FOX Sports: MLB (@MLBONFOX) September 7, 2015
So her brother uploaded a picture of her cat to Reddit and that’s it? That’s all you have to do to make MILLIONS of dollars huh? All this time I thought I’d somehow have to train a cat to throw a baseball or do something other than simply exist… I suck and NOW I’M GRUMPY.
Can I go throw out a pitch somewhere too?

Apparently, even a big win over a division rival isn’t enough to make @RealGrumpyCat smile. pic.twitter.com/YfSLMUmMjk — Arizona Diamondbacks (@Dbacks) September 8, 2015
At the end of the day, gotta hand it to Grumpy Cat. She’s living a better life than any of us could and it’s all thanks to the American Dream. Well that and YouTube and boredom and people’s inability to not love cat stuff on the internet.
It really is the simple things in life though…
PS: I searched “Taco Cat” expecting to maybe find one or two GIF’s to use… there were over 50. Behold the power of the internet + catz
