Don't Boo the President at the Ballpark

Congrats to the Washington Nationals on their opening of Nationals Park. And congrats to President George Walker Bush on throwing out the first pitch, albeit a bit high over the plate. But, and here's where I get critical and break my own rule of speaking politics and sports, you don't boo the president when you attend a sporting event and he throws out the first pitch. I know he has low ratings and got us into a war with no exit plan but you pay good money for those tickets knowing that he would be throwing out the first pitch. Show some class.

I hate Barry Bonds* with a passion but I wouldn't boo him. That said, I wouldn't applaud him either.
