Reflexes

If you’re looking for a fan of soon-to-be-former President Bush’s, you’ve come to the wrong place. That said, I give credit where credit is due, and I have to laud President Bush for:

1. Throwing the best “first pitch” of any chief executive in my lifetime at Game 3 of the 2001 World Series; and

2. Showing some nifty reflexes when a fireballin’ righty tried to brush him back yesterday.

Sure, President Biggio would have leaned into that pitch, but those are still some pretty good reflexes.

    And that is why I no longer order The Hardball Times Annual.

    President Milton Bradley would have charged him or anyone who commented on the incident in a manner he felt was disrespectful.

    President Alex Rodriquez would have acted upset and delayed long enough for the Iraqi President to ‘stop’ him from charging.

    President Robin Ventura would have gotten some great knuggies.

    Do I detect just a slight smile from the President after ducking Shoe #1, as if Pres Bush is amused by this particular assassination attempt? 

    If so, that’s terrific.
