Here’s how famous Sleater-Kinney’s Carrie Brownstein is now, thanks to Portlandia: She now gets to do things like throw out the first pitch at a baseball game. And here’s how much of a badass she is: She makes it look good. Brownstein threw the first pitch at yesterday’s Mariners/A’s game in Seattle, and she fired a strike right over the plate. Not many celebrities can say that! 50 Cent sure can’t! And Kendrick Lamar’s pitch almost grazed the plate last month. This is further evidence that Brownstein is a perfect human being who can do anything. Watch the pitch below.

I am now curious whether Brownstein could hit a field goal or sink a three-pointer.
