Turns Out, It Takes Two Bushes to Throw Out One Opening Pitch for World Series Game Four

This just in from John Blake and Major League Baseball: Yet again, Nolan Ryan will toss out the first pitch at the Ballpark in Arlington for a post-season game, when, tomorrow evening, he takes the mound for Game Three of the World Series. (And, no, apparently he's unavailable to work a few innings as relief, which is a damned shame.) On Halloween, when it may well be do or die for Your Texas Rangers, two of the X-Presidents will take the mound: George H.W. Bush and his boy Dubya. Which completely screws up my costume now.
