Mark Lerner said that barring a national crisis, President Bush will be throwing out the first pitch. "He's been warming up since December, I understand," said Mr. Lerner.
Yes!--and rightly so. There has been no question where The African Queen and I stand on this issue. We don't care about the politics when it comes to an Opening Day--First Pitch--By The President Of The United States.
President Bush or ANY SUBSEQUENT Presidential Office Holder should honor America's Pastime each and every Home Opener of Our Washington Nationals--if reasonably possible. We live in The Capital Of The Free World. Sohna and I respect The "OFFICE" OF THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA--whether we agree with the person's polices or not. The unique qualities of Washington, DC--we never take for granted.
Bravo--Mr. Bush!! Sohna and I will clap for you on March 30th--for only the second time since you took office.
April 14th, 2005--being the only other date--that fabulous night when Baseball Returned to Washington, DC after 33 longing years.
