Hey, it was better than his last sporting outing
In a true Sporlimoment, head man Dick Cheney pushed out the first pitch before the Nationals' home opener yesterday. The pitch made it to the plate after a couple bounces, but give the man a break. He's 65, has a bad heart, and is responsible for one of the worst foreign-policy gaffes in our nation's history.
The interesting tidbit came via the AP:
Greeted with loud boos and some cheers, Vice President Dick Cheney threw out the ceremonial first pitch Tuesday at the Washington Nationals’ home opener.
He stood directly in front of the mound and released a ball that hit the dirt in front of home plate. Nationals catcher Brian Schneider scooped it up.Cheney wore a red-and-blue Nationals jacket that seemed bulky, perhaps filled out by a bulletproof vest. Security agents ringed the top edge of the outdoor stadium.
Check out the pic and the video, and there's no doubt that he was wearing something underneath that jacket. Be sure to listen for the loud boos over the FOX anchor's best efforts to drown them out. It's a bitch when you actually have to listen to outside-the-bubblers, ain't it?
