Was Dick Cheney involved?

Edit: Goodness, look at these photos: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/in_pictures/4775096.stm I had just as much trouble keeping a straight face as Mr. Bush must have had.  Silly

Those pictures of Lurch and the football (get over it World!) are great.

I liked the caption on one of the photos...The president is better acquainted with baseball techniques than cricket.

Throwing a ball...yes. Running a MLB team...no

Seing daddy Bush throw like a girl is pretty good too though...



And btw, what is up with this pic?

Of course, it's well known that George Bush has cricketing genes, as can be seen in these pictures of his long lost relatives....

That set of pictures from BBC has to be the funniest thing I have seen in a long time. The photographer definatley deserves an award for timing! Now we need to see him try football (REAL football, not that pathetic excuse for a sport where feet aren't even used Big grin  Wink)

There is already rumours about Bush's revenge for being forced to play cricket.
Word goes that on his next visit to the USA, they will send Musharraf to go quail hunting with Dick Cheney...
