It's not baseball, but here's a fun video link and story about Barack Obama's basketball days.

I love the reminiscence from the guy who used to play pickup games with him. It's obviously intended to be complimentary, but the translation is: "he really had no inside game, he really had no outside game, he really didn't have any ball handling skills, but he acted like a leader and often brought the ball up the court anyway."

Anyone who has played pickup basketball knows a guy like this (i.e. no skillz, but who still always wants to hold the rock). I like Obama an awful lot, but I'm glad the primaries are still months away, because it may take me that long to convince myself to vote for a chucker.
