We are in for years of dominance by Congressional Democrats

No, not politically. But from a baseball perspective, most definitely:

Rep. Cedric Richmond (D-LA) smoked the GOP in this year’s congressional baseball game:  The former college player pitched a complete game one-hitter, striking out 13, in leading Democrats to a 8-2 victory.

A full story of last Thursday’s Roll Call game can be read here. Photos can be seen here.  We don’t have a link to the post-game injury report, because they don’t have enough paper in Washington to list the strained muscles that these geezers probably suffered. Well, except for Richmond anyway, who probably threw his normal side session yesterday.

Word on the street is that the Republicans are trying really hard to get Randy Johnson to run for Congress.

The Mariners unveiled a statue of Hall of Fame outfielder Ken Griffey, Jr. earlier this year at Safeco Field, featuring the slugger in his famous follow-through seen after each of his 630 career home runs. Chris Daniels of KING 5 News in Seattle reported on Tuesday evening that someone had stolen the bat from the statue.

Thankfully, the Seattle Police Department announced that the bat has been recovered and a suspect has been arrested. They expect to provide more details later. Daniels reports the Mariners have confirmed the news.

My fellow Americans, our long national nightmare is over.
