Hail to the Champs

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.

"Kevin (Millar) could be in trouble," Trot Nixon said regarding the Sox's visit to the White House today. "He could get shot."

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.

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)
