You can say a lot of things about President George W. Bush these days. But one thing we can agree on is that he's a lucky man. He's got a baseball field in his backyard. President Bush hosted a bunch of girls to the White House today for the first softball tee ball game.
"We're a big believer in Title IX programs," Bush said of the federal legislation that bars gender bias in athletics. "We think it's good for America that our women are playing sports. The best way to convince women to play sports is to start early."
The self appointed "Decider" also decided on the South Lawn rules: no outs, and no strikes. Each member of the Luray Little League Red Wings from Luray, Va., and the Allegany County Little League Bobcats from Cumberland, Md. Took their turn at the plate and "were encouraged" to run the bases. Why wouldn't a girl lucky enough to play at the White House want to run the bases? It's hogwash! With the Arizona Softball team on hand to cheer on the players, you can bet their fathers would have wanted to. I'm guessing they weren't dressed like this though.
