Proof Positive Obama’s in FULL Campaign Mode

He would NEVER have said anything about it otherwise.

Obama: Yes, they pretty much swept. So I told them, if you need a lefty. [Laughter.] But I think the very first one was a minor league team out in the Western suburbs that I threw out a first pitch, and I think I did ground it, but, fortunately, nobody knew who I was so it didn’t get on YouTube.

Bill Simmons: Well, how much flexibility do you have with the vest? Like, do you have full, or do you have to go like sidearm?

Obama: It’s a little bulky. You kind of — I give credit — when I think about George Bush and the pitch he threw —

BS: At 9/11. Post-9/11.

Obama: — at 9/11. Unbelievable pitch.

BS: Right down the middle.

Obama: Right down the middle. And huge credit for that. I give that guy a lot of props for that one.

BS: And I think Jeter said to him before the game, “Don’t screw this up,” or something like that.

Obama: That’s exactly what he said. He saw him behind the bullpen and said, “Don’t screw it up.” And he didn’t.

BS: I do feel like it’s, like, a weirdly important thing to have your president be able to come out and throw, like, a half-decent first pitch.

Obama parries that little thrust by ignoring it completely and sharing an anecdote about a “swish” (OH, LORD) he made with a b-ball after being called out on a visit to Iraq as a Senator.

Yeah. “EXACTLY the same” is what I thought, too.

    If you have to tell people what a great athlete you are then you really aren’t.
