You could also learn a lot from Dizzy Dean, one of the all-time greats at "creative" use of the language (so much so that parents got upset when he became a broadcaster, in fact). Some good ones I remember reading about are

They woulda got him at second but he slud.
The docs X-rayed my head and found nothing.
I ain't what I used to be, but who the hell is?
and of course the truly valuable
It ain't braggin' if you back it up.
I believe he often used throwed as a past tense form, as well, and even tried to defend his use of slud as having some special meaning distinct from slid.

Ah, yes, and he definitely used throwed, I just rememebered, in another classic. I believe he pitched a 1-hitter in the opener of a double-header and then his brother Paul "Daffy" Dean (the serious one, they say -- !!!) pitched a no-hitter, and Dizzy later quipped something like

Well if I'd known [knowed?] Paul was gonna throw a no-hitter, I'd a throwed one, too!
If not then that's at least in keeping with the spirit of the comment and his style.
