Update [2005-3-2 12:52:32 by RBooth]: Added a little note on the bottom about former Sox outfielder Gabe Kapler.
This may become a national disaster -- literally. Because today the members of the 2004 World Series champion Boston Red Sox -- you know, The Idiots -- visit President George W. Bush in the cozy confines of the South Lawn at the White House.
That pretty much sums it up nicely. Good luck, Kevin. And please: When President Bush says he doesn't want KFC, then he doesn't want KFC. And it'd be smart not to offer him any Jack Daniels, either.
On a more serious note, every member of the 2004 World Champions was invited, but the only member that is no longer a part of the team attending is retired Curtis Leskanic.
Even with a visit to Washington today, it isn't all fun and games for the Sox. They woke up nice and early for an 8:30 A.M. practice for the whole team to attend.
KAPLER MAKES DEBUT
Former Red Sox Gabe Kapler's first at-bat for the Yomiuri Giants was a big one as he hit a three-run home run to kick off his debut during spring training.
Kapler also walked and popped-up to third base. Kapler's home run lead to a 4-3 victory for the Giants. (Projo Article - Free registration required)
