The losing streak is over.
For the first time in eight years, Democratic lawmakers were able to defeat Republicans in the annual Roll Call Congressional Baseball game. [pounding]
Final score: 15-10
Highlights included, but were not limited to:
Thad McCotter sprinting to first – only to get taken out for a pinch runner and CPR.
Heath Shuler proving he’s terrible at sports.
Bart Stupak channeling his inner Jeter and catching a foul pop as he tumbled over the dugout railing in the fourth inning.
Jeff Flake hitting a triple, but only after the Democrats tried to insert an earmark into the pitch. [making it inevitable that he was bound to hammer it.]
Adam Putnam proving he was like a motion to recommit – you can put him up … But it’s unlikely to go anywhere.
