Nationals: No "Change-up We Can Believe In"-Obama Out!

Despite earlier evidence to the contrary, President Obama will not be throwing out the first pitch for the Nationals on Monday. 

*Commence Pouting*

You know-BLAH-timore got Joe Biden, the deal was we were supposed to get the Prez.

It’s a tradition that dates back to William Howard Taft in 1910, right here in Washington DC (At National Park).  Since then Woodrow Wilson, Warren Harding, Calvin Coolidge, Herbert Hoover, FDR, Harry Truman, Dwight Eisenhower, John Kennedy, Lyndon Johnson and Richard Nixon all threw out at least one ball for the Washington Nationals/Senators. 

Ford, Reagan, Bush I and Bill Clinton all found somewhere to throw out the first ball while President when there wasn’t baseball in DC.

Bush II came out to both Nationals Parks to throw out the first pitch. 

And here we are-economically depressed, bad team and his new home town-and he’s not going to throw out the first pitch.  I get that, you know, he’s got more important things to do-so do I, if we really want to get down to it.  That said, it was a nice gesture that a lot of people were looking forward to seeing.  I’m going to call LAME on this one. 

I mean he made time for a Wizards game-A Wizards GameAnd that was only so he could root for the Bulls!  Alright-he’s a Bulls fan, sure-go for it.  Go see your team, you’re the Prez. 

You know I’m blowing off work on Monday to go to the game-why can’t he?  It’s like 3 hours-no big deal!  He can even bring his blackberry and stuff-they have Wi-fi at the field! 

Just, you know-stop by a bar on 8th Street SE for a beer, come on over to the game-I”ll get you a Sunset Wheat at the Red Porch-throw out a ball and you’re done!  You don’t even have to stay!  It’s 5 minutes down the road-especially with one of those motorcade deals we all know you’re going to get if you come!

Pretty much I’ll expect that when I leave the game on Sunday I’ll be greeted with the news that it was a very productive Monday for the President in which he either fixed health care or the economy as a whole. 

*End Pouting*

Hopefully we can get him to come out for one of the July 4th games against Atlanta, or a few weeks later when the Cubs show up (I know-he’s a White Sox fan). 

And seriously, Sr?  Consider yourself penciled in for Opening Day next year.
