Obama’s pitch

pitch

I don’t care that he can’t pitch, baseball’s not his game. However, his fistpump gesture after the pitch, as if he’d thrown a decent pitch, epitomizes the man and his message.

    I’d read that gesture as just plain relief that the catcher was able to get it before it hit the ground. He wasn’t congratulating himself. A very understated, almost self-deprecating gesture, in any case – http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0709/24953.html

    Angela,
    You may have read that; however, if one watches the video clip for oneself, I don’t see how one can honestly put that interpretation on it. The media’s spin “The left-hander grimaced slightly, and gave a fist pump when Pujols — a Gold Glove first baseman — made the neat grab” to suggest that the fist pump was for Pujols’ catch just does not ring true. That’s not the gesture a man would make to thank Pujols for his face-saving catch.
