That looks like the pitch that kid threw in Rookie of the Year after he hurt his arm.

Did anybody else but my son and I think that the camera angle was intentional in case the pitch couldnt make the distance?

Even though the audio feed attempted to mask it he was boo’ed loudly by the crowd. I think that rattled him a bit.

Chuck Todd is yet another Obama-worshiper. I’m surprised he doesn’t slobber more when he’s talking about him.

Obama the Poseur. He throws like a girl. And not an attractive girl. An ugly uncoordinated girl who drops things.

He’s kind of disoriented without Larry Sinclaire catching for him.

possibly but does Charlie throw lie Obama? I will amend my comments to say there are homosexuals that can throw properly.

A bit off topic, but did you catch that when he was in the booth with Joe Buck and Tim McCarver, he told them, “I grew up in Hawaii...”

Nothing about being born there...

I stopped watching the game because Dear Leader was everywhere. One would think the only reason they had an All Star Game was because he would be there. Puke.

The cameraman purposely avoided showing the catcher.

It is sickening. BOTH ESPN and Foxsports are full of Obeyme worship I had to turn it off.

I wish there was a TIVO setting whenever the radio or TV says Obama it would MUTE.

Also check out Yahoo Sports where the title reads “where the cameras pick up”(the pitch). The MSM were obviously trying to cover for this Kenyan dingbat.

Yes, when I tell people that I'm originally from Philadelphia, I always follow “I grew up in Philly” with “I was born there”. I'll either say that, or “I was born and raised in Philadelphia.”

But never just “I grew up” there and nothing else. I found that a little odd, and Obama seemed to look around nervously right after telling them, “I grew up in Hawaii”, like he was missing something. I'd love to see a tape of that moment in the booth. Of course, I could just be projecting my own suspicions here, and this could be nothing.

Wow, that is brilliant! If someone could invent a device that would mute the TV or change channels when Obama was on, he would make a million $. I would buy one in an instant.
