And which president throws like a little gay boy?
I think Dubya has this one wrapped up. OTOH, I could imagine Gerald Ford throwing a good looking opening pitch.
Girls are not dorks
I have a dial-up modem so will not even try to watch the video but I remember Bush Jr. threw a strike and actually looked like a pitcher.
The cursed one looked like a girl throwing.
Ford looks like he’s getting ready to throw a football.
Reagan looks a little stiff.
Ike looks a little dorky.
I would go with W. as the best since he did play a lot of baseball.
Clinton just played with his balls a lot.
Obama has no balls.
Well, who? I'm not giving you a hit.
How about you just summarize the rest.
LOL. A masterpiece!
Pretty cool and fun! Both of the Bush family have pretty good form. From proper use of the rubber to plant foot placement and arm position, they were easily the picks from a former pitcher and part-time baseball coach. Johnson got my vote for worst. His grip on the ball looked like he was trying to throw a slider but had the wrong hand/wrist position. Obama is losing in a landslide (omen of things to come?) and was a very close second for my vote. Would have been more fun if the poll let you rank them! All the Rs (and I don’t mean RHP) would be on top and the Ds on the bottom!
According to the slide show presented in the article, all the Presidents before Reagan could not exhibit ANY pitching form as they were in the stands, not on the mound.
Ah, another person refers to the Cretin-in-Chief as a “dork”.
Actually, there is a heated competition as to who is the “most vapid dork”.
The two top rated finalists: The human-like slug currently posing as president or RINOmney, the non-human like slug currently posing as a Repulsican.
Bush. Hands down.
Let him walk.....home..
No pitch was better or meant more to me than George Bush throwing in Yankee stadium 1 week after 9/11. An epic moment that brings tears to my eyes as I type. And more tears at how far we have fallen from those days.
Best Bush, the Younger
I won’t even ask how you did that. But it is perfect! :-)
It’s funny, but Obama does not look that good in shorts.
