I was thinking that it would be great if Native Michigan son, Mitt Romney, threw out the first pitch at the first Tigers home game of the World Series. Considering that it's a swing state, his Dad was a popular Governor there, and it's very close to the election, this seems like a no brainer.
It would also send a message to the Obama campaign that "damn right we're contesting Michigan". It would also be best to do this at the first Tigers home game, since the crowd will be so revved up, regardless of what happens during the first two games in San Francisco.
Are there any Tigers fans out there who are aware of any plans to make this happen? I'd love to see what kind of reaction he'd get, and it would be on National TV!
Thanks for any info you can give me about this.
Here's youtube of another game ...
Obama needs to curl his lip to toss like a school girl.
1. Romney would need to audition for the gig with someone
like retired Sen Jim Bunning in case he throws like the Bobbie-
Soxer pictured above.
2. If the Tigers failed to win the game he and GW Bush would
both be blamed for the loss.
3. GO GIANTS! ; )
I’ve seen that pic of Obama trying to throw a baseball many times. This is the first time I noticed the ironed crease down the front of his jeans.
Ha ha...what a dweeb!
Unless it's ladies night in which case Obama will toss out the first pitch.
It would be great.
But alas, Wiki Answers ...
Question: DId Mitt Romney Ever Play Sports???
Answer: He was on the Cross Country track team in High School.
The fact that Romney has five sons... One would think he tossed a ball around with them at some time....
I also remember the Romney family had played some type of sports game as a family in the annual family event.... If my memory serves me correct...
I don’t care if Robocop throws out the first pitch in Detroit as long as the Tigers throw the last pitch. GO TIGERS!
Suppose he gets Booed By thousands of the Fans?

Thanks for that link! LoL. I guess the presidents “mom jeans” were noticed.
Thinking of GWB throwing a strike in updated Yankee Stadium in 2001. and now we have the effete socialist.
It might be a good idea to avoid those venues until after the election. Even if he gets a smattering of boos, the MSM will destroy him.
I wouldn't do it, no way, Jose.
Based on the responses I saw during the “Woodward Dream Cruise”, where people lining the streets shouted obscentities and flipped the bird at a passing Romney Campaign Bus, he would be boo’d at a downtown Tigers game. The Detroit area is still heavily entrenched in the Union Thug mentality.
