Bush, Kerry to appear on ESPN's SportsCenter

Bush: "I'm not sure what I'd like to do after serving the country. But I had a wonderful time in baseball. I loved my time there. I still love to watch the games; there's nothing more therapeutic than watching a baseball game."

Spoken like a man who played stickball until dusk and loves a warm apple pie fresh from the window sill.

Kerry said he has supported stadiums that are funded by taxpayers.

"I want to make certain that when you do that again, these other kinds of things are balanced," he said. "The minute you get the public piece in there, then you have a right to demand some sort of public accountability. And the sports people can't have it both ways in my judgment. You can't have the public support a completely private enterprise ... that's where the standards and the fans protection become much more paramount."


Spoken like a man who has NO IDEA WHAT HE'S TALKING ABOUT and probably has never graced the SportsWorld with his presence except for that unfortunate p.r. driven instance where he turned to the blue-collar schmoe who cut in line in front of him at the concession stand and said, "DO YOU KNOW WHO I AM?"
