Great Moments in American Sports- The Greatest Presidential First Pitch in History
In the wake of the attacks (by Islamofascists) against our Nation on 11 September 2001, President George W. Bush traveled to New York City for Game 3 of the World Series between the Yankees and the Arizona Diamondbacks. He strode confidently from the Yankees dugout in a sweatshirt emblazoned with FDNY, a tribute to the great heroes of the New York Fire Department, gave the fans a thumbs up from the mound and then fired a perfect strike to Yankees' catcher Todd Greene. As he left the mound, the fans chanted "USA, USA." Even Rosie O'Donnell, noted overweight loudmouth and leftist, expressed pride and admiration for her country and President on that day. What a moment, what a man!
