What a moment!
George Bush 41 and George Bush 43 entered the stadium together tonight to throw out the first ball at the World Series.
THE CROWD ROARED. Then GW threw a strike to homeplate catcher Nolan Ryan to start off game 4.
What a wonderful moment.
Watch the video here!

Nice toss. Strike, looked like he barely tried, too. Quite a contrast to zero.
They also showed Barbara Bush scoring the game in the bottom of the first. That was excellent.
Bush 41 had a cane, looked like he wasn’t doing great, but had a big smile!
Nolan is getting old, too.
It was a beautiful thing to watch. Crowd went wild. Dubya even gave a salute to the military that saluted him & his Dad.
I saw it. Saw all the military out there. And I know...I KNOW...that W would love to have shaken the hand of every last one of them...but then the game would never have started.
P.S. Who’s playing? /just kidding
“looked like he barely tried, too”
BTW, by that, I meant he didn’t have to work up to it, rather it was very natural. It’s a compliment.
I miss the grown-ups being in charge.
I’d almost forgotten the feeling I had while watching that.
Not sure if anyone else knows what I’m talking about, but that was great, thanks for posting this (no TV where I am).
Great post! HOORAY dad and son! HOORAY Texas!
I agree. That was a great first pitch. Class people.
Bush throws like a man while the bamster not so much.
Did I always agree with you? No way.
Was I confident in you during 9/11? Absolutely.
Did I ever doubt your love for this country? Never.
Can you throw a baseball unlike some we know? ;)
Do I miss ya now??? D$m* skippy.
Hey Bozo, its a BASEBALL, not Michelles testes.
That forgotten feeling?
Pride in Presidents who, while not perfect, still clearly loved and respected their country and the troops who served.
Touching scene. Texans showed genuine affection for both presidents.
Time for the bullpen.
Dubya’s pitch count is approaching 100 on Free Republic tonight.
Nice to see a president that throws a baseball like a man.
What made me a bit misty eyed was seeing Barbara and Laura snapping shots of their husbands.
Unlike liberals, conservatives actually love their spouses and see them as a part of their lives, but just a political stepping stone.
Ryan is a few months younger than the younger Bush. Kinda hard to believe, looking at them.
I agree. I didn't like Bush's politics. I think he nearly ruined the Republican Party. But he does have class. And thank goodness for the Tea Party which is attempting to repair the damage that Bush did to the GOP.
At least George Bush has enough class not to comment on current politics, unlike Bill Clinton and that disgusting opportunist Jimmy Carter.
LOL!...and all strikes.
I voted for W twice, and supported him until I couldn’t anymore. I just wish he’d been more conservative.
plenty of liberal scum spewing hate on the youtube comment section. I hope they are twisted into crazy knots over it.... too late
Pops not getting around too easy these days. GWB was definitely relaxed. Very sure of himself. Here ya go. Strike. Nice bit of Americana. I like the stadium organ after the pitch. Also liked GW driving the cart.
I think I got a little Chrissy Mathews tingle! Go W!
I know. I am 56, and I look a LOT younger than either of them. Do you know how old they are? I haven’t a clue.
Based on the reception that GW Bush and his dad received at the Ranger ballpark this evening in Arlington, Texas, I would have to say Democrat Bill White and his Democrat Party are going to spanked real bad come Tuesday evening in the “Red” state of Texas!!! Folks, compare the “Bush” reception to the weak reception and attendance at the Obama rally in Cleveland this afternoon. Obama and his anti-American Democrat vermin are going down this Tuesday evening all across this great land. America will be saved for future Americans.
Laura Ingraham was talking about what people would be doing on election night. She talked a bit about the election of 2000 and how that was a night most adults would remember because of the results or nonresults out of Florida.
I had voted for Gore in that election and was sick with dread that the evil Bush had won, or might win. I believed that the election was stolen.
Then 911 and all that changed. Bush impressed me as no president ever had.
I grew to love him and his family though there were many things I didn’t like about his presidency.
I am a conservative now having seen the light and watching that reminded me of how much I miss that man.
Thanks for posting this :)
W is 64 (as of July), and Nolan is 63 (until January).
how I miss having a man for a president...
You could see in his body language how embarrassed he was, but it was one of the most human things I had ever seen. I wish I could find the YouTube of that.
THAT’S what I am going to look like in 8 years? Nah :>)
I was at the Bush library in College Station last week and they said 41 had slowed down a lot. He was in a meeting and was using a cane and someone walked by with their hands near his arms to help him along. It was great to see him and W. out tonight, and throw a great pitch, compared to the girly man pitches of “That One”
we know.....we KNOW....
George H.W. Bush turned 86 last June 12th.
Biggest mistake, TARP. Second, allowing himself to be treated as a doormat/punching-bag by the libs & media, without ever fighting back. Otherwise, a decent prez, although not conservative enough on the small government front. Regardless, infinitely better than the current POS we have.
I voted for W twice, and supported him until I couldnt anymore. I just wish hed been more conservative.
when you start to think this way, please consider what the alternative would have been...I would have voted for either of them ten more times rather than turn the country over to Obama and the “progressives”.....by the way, why do they call those who want us to be more like the soviet union progressive?????
Hey, whatever else you want to say about him, the man knows how to throw a first pitch!
On another note, I know this is Texas and the crowd is charged up for a World Series game, but that was still a pretty good ovation. It got me thinking... Obama won in 2008 in large part because he was Not Bush. Have we now reached the point where Bush gets an ovation for being Not Obama?
Nothing to add here - you said it all.
Just like the family next door....Nice folks. I thank them for their service.
Yes, I did. That's why I voted for W twice.
I would have voted for either of them ten more times rather than turn the country over to Obama and the progressives
W didn't run against Obama. McCain did and I vote for him even though I don't like McCain very much.
by the way, why do they call those who want us to be more like the soviet union progressive?????
That's easy to answer: euphemism.
Cool story, Jvette. I also came home from the dark side, but my escape happened during the Lewinsky scandal.
Good to have you.
Yeah, I miss GW, too.
