Barack Obama Throws Out First Pitch At 2009 MLB All-Star Game
Total Pro Sports – It may have seemed like a day off for the president of the United States of America last night, but the pressure was still on Barack Obama as he stepped to the mound to throw out the ceremonial opening pitch for the MLB All-Star game at Busch Stadium in St. Louis. Would he end up embarrassing himself like Howard Stern TV personality Baba Booey, or would he impress the fans with his arm, much like the Kardashian’s did with their looks at Dodger Stadium earlier this year?
President Obama came out to what seemed to be a mixture of cheers and boos. We are still trying to figure out if the boos were a response to the continued recession or his Chicago White Sox jacket.
A lefty, like Mr. T, Obama hurled in a short-hop to the Cardinals Albert Pujos, who was behind the plate. Not a bad effort, and one that should save him from embarrassment. Thankfully he refrained from following in Mr. T’s footsteps and steered clear of singing “Take Me Out To The Ball Game” during the seventh inning stretch. That could have cost his a second term.
