  1. LJD says:

    Kinda reminds me of my fraternity days… heh heh

  2. Mark says:

    Dateline 2008

    Barry Bonds, steroid free for three years, appears in public for the first time since 2005, his body deteriorating into an old gray-haired white guy.

  3. Maggie says:

    This is the way I showed my Houston Astros how to do it.

  4. Matt says:

    President Bush reenacts November 6, 2004. “Bend over Senator!”

  5. ICallMasICM says:

    Another popout to the shortstop. Back to the Bush leagues.

  6. “Maybe if A-Rod could have used one of these, I wouldn’t have had to sell his ass to the Yankees.”

  7. “Killing These Crickets With A Bat Is Too Slow, If I Was President Of This Country I Would Nuke Em.”

  8. FreakyBoy says:

    Once he saw Bush grab a bat, Agent Wilson knew, as the newest member of the detail, he would be responsible for cleaning the Presidential jockstrap again.

  9. Ingress says:

    Dubya was relieved that he managed to visit, play in and enjoy the place without ever having to pronounce Islamabad.

  10. John Burgess says:

    “You know, with these flat bats, I bet we could get some really good batting averages…”

  11. McGehee says:

    “When I was at Yale we used to have paddles like this, but we only used ’em for hazin’ pledges.”

  12. Elmo says:

    Bill Clinton isn’t the only one with a sticky wicket.

  13. Elmo says:

    When asked about the quantity and tenor of the now relentless fifth column attacks, upon his administration, the President replied: “it’s like swatting at flies.”

  14. Elmo says:

    More channeling Bill Clinton: “I’m gonna get me a piece of that.”

  15. Maniakes says:

    Man, the umpire’s calling an awful lot of low strikes today. And what’s with the sticks in front of the catcher?

  16. T. Harris says:

    “Heh-heh, this is almost as much fun as whackin’ evildoers.”

  17. scotty says:

    Bush paddles, kids died!

  18. scotty says:

    Al Gore’s evidence on his accusation Bush mistreats Arabs in the US turns out to be false, Bush just kicked there ass at cricket, but then again Cricket is a sport played by men and what would Gore know about sports and men for that matter.

  19. ken says:

    “Coming your way, Butt. Heh heh…I love saying that…

  20. ken says:

    Bush demonstrates why the Texas Rangers have always sucked.

  21. Bithead says:

    * Fore!

    * The first and only tryout of the glass cricket bat.

    * New York Times Headlines over this picture scream: “Club Weilding George W Bush charged with Battery”

  22. McCain says:

    Inadvertently creating a political firestorm, Bush outsources the Secret Service to some guy named Raheed.

  23. Bush-lbw

    That’s just not cricket.

    Bush goes for six as Dean moves from third slip to silly point.

    Viv Richards, eat your heart out.

    Say what you want, facing Imran Khan without protective gear takes balls.

    Great googly, Moogly.

    Politicians love throwing out the first pitch in cricket matches where bouncing the ball in is rather strongly encouraged.

    Bush swings for the, um, fences.

    (Somebody make sure Tim Blair knows about this one.)

  24. Rachel Edith says:

    “Well, Mr. U. S. President, you would to enjoy this school as you did your Yale School. Must to maintain below average grades for to matriculate. Arrive and is great fun. Much substance abuse and games. Then get sheepskin.”

  25. the man says:

    Bush learned to swing the paddle during his days at Yale, hazing John Kerry in the Skull & Bones fraternity.

  26. AP: President Bush, dodging allegations of steroid use, is only 56 googlies away from Hank “the Hindu” Aaron’s all-time mark. Bush credits his unique batting form, not human growth hormones, for his googly success.

  27. “I would Of Brought Cheney, But I Was Afraid He Would Hit Some One In The Head With A Cricket Ball.”

  28. “I Had A Sticky Wicket Once But I Washed It.”

  29. DaveD says:

    It was one of the few problems Laura had with her husband. George always got so competitive playing a simple game of catch with the family springer spaniel.

  30. After the second over, Bush started taunting the bowler and suggested he “bring it on” instead of bouncing it in front of him every time.

    “Well, thank you for the opportunity to play cricket, Pervez. I brought Roger Clemens along to let you try your hand at baseball.”

    Joe Buck’s agent is sitting in the stands desperately hoping that Bush can hit one for six so that Joe can introduce the second larget market in the world to his catch phrase, “Slama-lama ding dong.”

    To get in the zone, President Bush could be overheard muttering to himself like an Indian Ted Williams as he warmed up, “I am Shiva, the Destroyer of Worlds.”

  31. When told that a first-class cricket test match can run for five days, President Bush remarked that cricket is more like baseball than he had realized.

  32. Hermoine says:

    The President decided he’d go to the Summer Olympics as an athlete.

  33. “Bush corks one into right down the line! It may go…! Go crazy, folks!! Go crazy!! It’s a home run!! And the Republicans have won the game…by the score of 3 to 2…on a home run by… the Prez! Go crazy!”

    (Redone of the Ozzie Smith HR in 1985)

  34. spacemonkey says:

    Them crickets got big balls!

  35. rajesh says:

    My battin’z much better than my English, I suppose
