PHOTO: "Cricket is FABULOUS!"
Edited on Sat Mar-04-06 09:43 PM by Bluebear


....He took his turn at bat after a few pointers from Shahryar Khan, chairman of Pakistan's Cricket Board, and Inzamam-ul-Haq, captain of Pakistan's Cricket Team.

Bush took three practice swings with the bat, which is flat on one side. He pretended to knock dirt from his shoes like a baseball player stepping to the plate, then strode to the wickets for a few swings.

The president connected with the first pitch, was hit in the shoulder by the second and sent a third ball sailing into a tree.

"Put something on that thing," Bush called out to the bowler, the equivalent of a pitcher in baseball. "Do I have my elbow right?"

6. Yes, just the day before he arrived, this happened:
...The problem of terrorism inside Pakistan and the kinds of pressures General Musharraf faces were evident on Thursday when a suicide bomber killed an American diplomat and two others outside the American Consulate in Karachi...

I don't suppose Bush attended a funeral or made a condolence call.
