October XXXIst, MMXV
Hon. Dave Eggen, B. Ed., MLA, Minister of Education, New Democratic, Edmonton-Calder
On the "check swing", we have Congressman Cedric Richmond of Louisiana demonstrating good humor to baseball fanatics & their families alike about a surgery he needs for an injury to his pitchingarm. With The World Series (TM) of Major League Baseball (MLB) raging right now & with The Dominion Of Canada's Toronto Blue Jays just eliminated from contention, we get Cedric to "play ball" with us & chat about his injury & the Congressional Baseball Game where party's from both sides of the aisle come together once a year & put aside their differences to play for charity. Not that Cedric the pitched doesn't think that the GOP wouldn't try & take advantage of his injured pitching arm politically so they can win future games.
"I suspect some Republicans are going to be excited when they see me walking around in a sling."
