Take me out to the ball game..,.

Good morning, Netizens...


Can you imagine Michelle Obama as a baseball pitcher for a major league baseball team? Instead of the sleek form-fitting silk dress she wore last night before the Democratic National Convention, she might show up sporting a baseball uniform and packing a baseball glove as she strides confidently to the pitcher's mound. The crowd stands and gives out a round of applause as she begins her warm-up pitches. Hot dogs and beer are served in the box seats and the crowd whips out her stat sheets to see if she can single-handedly retire the opposition's side.


It's not that far off, folks. It was, after all, a pitching duel between Michelle Obama and Ann Romney from day one.


The only thing that has been missing from this play on words is a chaw of tobacco, which neither person would tolerate in real life, and perhaps the physical difference between the two women. After all, Michelle Obama handily won a push-up contest. Did Ann Romney ever do that?


I'm not going to disparage either political party at this point in time, other than to point out that, despite what appearances might be, both Mrs. Obama and Romney have each had their chance to pitch their beliefs before their national political conventions, and each have thrown the requisite number of strike-outs and dud pitches.


What is an interesting thought is that perhaps President Obama is being brought in late in the game of politics to make a few pitches of his own. I will only add that this might be an interesting ball game, perhaps extra innings, and we probably won't know the final score until November. Please pass me the popcorn.
