Bush's first pitch: More cheers or boos?
or (a few hours earlier): Bush on the mound: More cheers than boos
The AP story doesn't decide one way or the other:
He was greeted by plenty of loud jeers, but also determined cheers, as if the fans in both camps were trying to outduel each other.The comsymps at the LAT:
President Bush set the script into motion, delivering the ceremonial opening-day first pitch, albeit to a chorus of mostly boos.Voice of America ("A trusted source of news and information since 1942") ignored the whole thing:
The game opened with a ceremonial first pitch thrown by President Bush. Manager Manny Acta caught the ball and says the visit by Mr. Bush made the day special.The founder of Fire Megan McArdle, brad, was especially unhappy w/ the president's hogging time on the ESPN cablecast:
"Sitting there in the clubhouse and seeing the President of the United States walk in. He talked to all of us. And he made everybody feel real good," Acta said.
A former Major League baseball team owner, Mr. Bush has showed interest in the construction of Nationals Park. He seemed at ease in the clubhouse, an oval dressing facility in the shape of the President's office at the White House.
Motherfucker. He stayed after the commercial break. Bush is just hanging out. The President of the fucking United goddamn States is chillin with the ESPN Sunday Night Baseball crew. I'm trying to watch baseball, you assholes. Joe Morgan is bad enough. Next they'll call up Camille Paglia.As if any more were needed.
He stayed through a second commercial break. I can't even mute it, they keep showing the shit eating twins grinning at each other in the booth.
This is proof God does not exist.
