Presidential First Pitch
Was it reallly a strike - or is this another case of media bias? Barack Obama's very first Presidential Pitch has sparked a global debate. Luckily we can "go to the tape" and do our own freeze-frame dissection. The only problem is, the actual landing of the pitch is fairly impossible to pinpoint, as you can see from this FOX clip. Where's the home plate camera? Sky Cam? The Radar Gun? Apparently the President's media advisors made an 'arrangement,' and they likely had YouTube in mind. But trust this southpaw expert: the ambidextrous leader has dead-eye aim and perfect balance (as witnessed by his frequent 3-pointers on the basketball court)...isnt that really all we need to know?
