IT'S OPENING DAY!!!!!!!!!!!

Unless you've been living under a rock (or perhaps on a plane flying back from Korea), I'm sure you realize that IT'S OPENING DAY FOR MLB! In the spirit of the day, I found this quiz interesting. How much do you know about the Presidents and Baseball? How much do you know about the All-Star Game?

For the first time in my lifetime, the sitting President threw the ceremonial first pitch for the Cincinnati Red's Opening Day game. He looked pretty good out there, so I thought I'd share some pix with ya, compliments of the Cincinnati Enquirer.

Jason LaRue and President Bush leave the field, accompanied by Sgt. Paul Brondhaver, Sgt. Mike McNaughton (remember him? The injured Soldier who went for a run with President Bush?), and John Prazynski, father of fallen Marine, Taylor Prazynski.

And then there's this little guy, who asked me this morning if President Bush knew how to play baseball. Of course he does, son. He's an AMERICAN. And maybe someday, you'll be out there on the Field of Dreams, catching (or perhaps throwing?) that ceremonial first pitch yourself.
