Bush almost whacked by foul ball

I thought I'd share with our readers an image that could rightly be titled "When Has-Beens Collide"--George W. Bush almost getting plonked on the head by a lazy pop foul, his life "saved" by perhaps the most hated man in baseball, former Twin A. J. Pierzynski.

As you can see from this video, the former president, now peanut-chomping baseball fan, was simply taking in a Rangers game when Adrian Beltre lofted a foul into the stands.

Look closely, and you'll see perhaps the laziest attempt by a security guard in history. In fact, it looks like the dude is trying to shield A. J. from the foul (and of course Pierzynski's got a helmet on.) Weird.
