House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, injured in June in a shooting in my hometown of Alexandria, Virginia, threw out the ceremonial first pitch before Game 1 of the NL Division Series between the Washington Nationals and Chicago Cubs on Friday night. What a great moment and what a great pitch!
With my family being from South Chicago, I certainly feel for all Cubs fans and for Steve Bartman. Here is the great documentary on the infamous Steve Bartman moment that happened ten years ago today.
WooHoo! Washington Nationals beat the Cubs and ensure first winning season since '69.
