Smarter Than I Thought?

Maybe George W. Bush is smarter than I thought. Probably not, but after reading a interview one thing is clear: Dubya knows baseball. When asked which pitcher he'd select (if he was once again an MLB team owner), he made the right, and wise, choice.

He chose our boy. That's right, Harry Leroy Halladay III. Bushy may not know much about foreign policy or, hell, even domestic policy, but the man knows his baseball.

"And Roy Halladay from the Toronto Blue Jays is a great pitcher. He's a steady guy, he burns up innings."

He more than just "burns up innings," Bushy. He's a complete-game machine.

Difficult to believe, but I've got a lot more faith in Bushy after today than I did yesterday.

For reaction on his selection from Harry himself, check out sports reporter extraordinaire Cathal Kelly's article at The Star.

Before I forget, Happy Birthday Queen Victoria. Much respect on the long weekend. It is appreciated. Cheers, and enjoy yourself.
