So who are we Phillies and Mets fans supposed to pull for on Opening Night? The Braves currently trail the Nationals 2-1 in the middle of the fourth at D.C.’s brand new ballpark, where the guy who threw out the first pitch just stopped by the TV booth.
Jon Miller: Chipper Jones whacks one, deep left…
George W. Bush: …looks like he may have the first home run in this ballpark…
Miller: As called by President George W. Bush.
Bush: It is… first home run… that thing was a rope…. He blasted that thing didn’t he? Here it is. Yeah.
Joe Morgan: Pretty much down the middle.
Bush: Yeah. Down the middle.
