It doesn't get much better than this, as 41-year-old five-time Olympic swimmer Dara Torres brought a Yankees Stadium crowd to its feet as she threw out the ceremonial first pitch in tonight's game against the White Sox.

Torres, who competed in Beijing after taking 8 years off--during which she had a kid--won three silver medals this time around.
