World's Most Hated Man Can Still Throw A Strike

George W. throws out the ceremonial first pitch to Texas Rangers catcher Josh Hamilton.
The Rangers beat the Cleveland Indians, today in Arlington.
(Watch the plate 'umpire' signal Stee-rike!)




meanwhile in the absence of B.arryHuss O.bama,
Vice Precedent Joe Biden tosses a high pitch,
a symbolic B.all O.ne, to B.altimore O.rioles catcher Gregg Zahn.
Check out Joe's poor form, boys and girls: weak. lame. aimless.
(BTW, Joe, that would be a 'Balk'.) All donkeys balk.

In St. Louis today, my favorite of favorite teams, the Cardinals lost in the 9th inning to the Pirates.
What's important though, what keeps us all yearning baseball during the long winter months, Bud,
was never ignored by fellow fans at Busch Lite Stadium:


Today is Opening Day.

I LOVE Baseball, God's favorite sport~!

WOW- I slowed down that first video to Slo-mo, frame by frame, and by George, that really WAS a strike he threw!

A slider, I believe.

re "check out Joe's poor form: weak. lame. aimless." - we already knew that, but how well did he throw the ball? ;)

Sorry,
there exists no video nor photographic evidence anywhere, that Joe Biden's pitch made it anywhere near home plate or Zahn, at all.

Graphic artists at Photoshop.com/ are furiously busy, as we speak.

About as well as my little sister. Probably never made it past 3 or 4 feet. LOL

"A bounce pass to the catcher,...
bouncing... bouncing.....
bouncin--
Zahn's got it, finally"


The CNN report says that Biden's pitch was 'high' and a ball.

OMGosh-- an Eephus pitch from the genius Biden to Zahn?

Has Saturn collided with the Earth?

I'm a (long suffering)Texas Rangers fan.

I wouldn't pay a nickle to go see another pro football game; it's much better on TV, esp. with the replay. I never could afford to get 50 yard line seats and most anywhere else the game is almost not viewable.

OTOH, I don't much care to watch baseball on the tube, but going to a game is a treat.
