Kerry just flubbed the opening pitch at the Yanks-Sox game
ESPN | 7/25/04 | me

Posted on 07/25/2004 5:06:57 PM PDT by finnman69

Kerry just 'threw' out the opening pitch at the Boston-Yankees game. Just saw Kerry pitch a really weak opening pitch, well short of the plate, bouncing under the catcher. What a poser!

I watched and laughed. Kerry's a hipster doofus (just not very hip).

Kerry is a Red Sox guy through and through, spring forward, fall back. There will be no hot dogs in Fenway in October and hot dog elected to the White House come November.

Girlie man moment. It can't be helped, short of a political ideology flip flop.

He's not the first to roll the pitch across the vicinity of the plate. Lucky he wasn't wounded.

It never crossed the plate.....

He was booed loudly by the Fenway crowd when he was announced.

He was wearing yellow polyester pants. Have not seen those since my father wore them back in the 1980's. What a spaz!

I was hoping somebody would post a thread on that! It was pathetic. Bush pitched a strike in Game 3 of the 2001 World Series, while Kerry throws like a girl. Also, I wonder if Kerry got to meet his favorite player, "Manny Ortez," before the game. And it wasn't exactly a rousing ovation for Kerry, either, even in the heart of Liberal Land.

The flubbed pitch is a non-issue; but the boos, that's something else in that hotbed of liberalism...

He threw an unintentional "ephus" pitch. Bounced before it got to the catcher, unlike the perfect strike W threw at the World Series at Yankee stadium in 2001.

He's going to do the old Red Sox fade this fall. They'll refer to him as "Mister April".

AND, when Bush pitched, it was shortly after 9/11 and everyone's nerves were shot. He would have been forgiven if he'd bobbled the pitch but it was perfect.

Kerry to Throw Yanks-Red Sox First Pitch

http://news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&u=/ap/20040725/ap_on_el_pr/cvn_kerry_red_sox_1
29 minutes ago

By NEDRA PICKLER, Associated Press Writer

BOSTON - John Kerry (news - web sites) made a surprise appearance at the Yankees-Red Sox baseball game Sunday night to throw out the opening pitch to a soldier home from Iraq (news - web sites), making an early arrival in the city where Democratic delegates were gathering to nominate him for president.

Sen. Kerry arranged for his flight between the battleground states of Ohio and Florida to be diverted to his hometown of Boston, where he had not been scheduled to make his grand entrance to the convention city until Wednesday afternoon. He said he planned the trip in secret about a week ago.

"The idea of missing a Yankees-Red Sox series right before a convention week was not acceptable, so we changed the policy," Kerry told reporters on the plane.

Kerry was to throw out the first pitch to Will Pumyea, 23, a military police officer in the Massachusetts National Guard, from North Chelmsford, Mass., who had just returned from Iraq and who had previously served in Afghanistan (news - web sites).

After throwing the pitch, Kerry was to sit with his wife, his daughters, former Sen. John Glenn of Ohio, the owners of the Red Sox and Pumyea at the game at Fenway Park.

Fans attending the game Sunday night did not have to go through metal detectors, which is the normal procedure for anyone attending an event with the Democratic presidential candidate. At Fenway Park, supporters distributed signs reading, "Sox Fans for Kerry."

The game was the third in the Boston homestand between the two fierce rivals — who are also the teams representing the two convention cities. The Republicans gather in New York in late August. The Yankees won the first game Friday and the Red Sox came back with a dramatic two-run homer in the bottom of the ninth inning to win a fight-marred game Saturday.

Kerry planned to fly on to Florida on Sunday night after the game and resume his schedule.

Just as Yankees fans are much different politically than the average NYC voter - I'm sure that the average Bosox fan is much different politically than the average Boston voter...
