Baseball is Here, All is Well! President Bush Booed!!

Thank you Lord for Baseball! Yes, I mean that. I love baseball, I live baseball, I hate the dark time between baseball seasons. The grass smells so sweet, the crack of the bat, the roar of the crowds, the knowledge that EVERY team is 0-0 and has a chance to win the World Series, it's all so awesome!
Last night I watched the opening game which featured the Washington Nationals versus the Atlanta Braves. It was a blast and a great game with a walk off home run.
Now, those of you not baseball fans, here is the other part.

President George W. Bush threw out the ceremonial first pitch and it was a great high fastball! He looked great and smiled great and I was very proud to watch him, knowing that no matter what goes on in the world, Baseball continues.

What bothered me was as the president was introduced, and all throughout his time on the mound, the crowd was about 50/50 cheers and boos. That is very disturbing. It shows a complete and utter lack of respect. I may not like this president, I may not like any of them, but that doesn't lessen my respect for the POSITION!!


We are a very disrespectful nation aren't we? Besides all the political stuff, heck, it's a BASEBALL game! How about just a cheer for a nice man who loves baseball and is throwing out the first pitch?

It really made me sick to watch.

No matter, BASEBALL goes on and my Beloved Dodgers start today, so GO DODGERS!!!!

You can CAPS LOCK all you want, but it ain't going to change the "me" generations. (Notice the plurality of the word) What we are not being taught by our parents (not our schools, please, it's the parents' job to do this one), is that a sense of community and country is also a "heart" condition! Picking up debris in the local park while harboring ill thoughts for our country's leadership are contradictory. Do you really expect our secularized nation to diligently practice Romans 13?

Oh, the heart, the heart...and the shame.

God forgive us and help us...and yes, the responsibility is on the parents.

Bush is doing a horrible job. The fact that he goes out in public at all is astonishing. I would've encouraged egg and rotten tomato throwing at that pathetic little coward who uses religion to fool you into thinking he cares.
