Michelle Obama, Jill Biden to attend the World Series opener

Michelle Obama and Jill Biden are scheduled to attend the World Series opener in St. Louis on Wednesday night to honor military veterans. It’s part of MLB’s Welcome Back Veterans program and Michelle Obama’s Joining Forces initiative, which seeks to support veterans and their families.

There’s not much else to this little news item, which came as a press release from Major League Baseball.  I just want the record to reflect that the moment I read it, I pictured Michele Obama throwing out the first pitch like Queen Elizabeth from “The Naked Gun.”

How about that queen, ladies and gentlemen?
