And just like Obama himself his first pitch to open the 2010 baseball season was far to the left. He ditched the mom jeans this year for a pair of khakis but it didn't help at all.

Andrea Mitchell was practically in tears, she was so heartbroken over it. She was desperately looking to anyone else on the set to save the situation. Chuck Todd tried his best for her by getting his anti-Bush dig in.
Obama insists he'd been practicing before throwing ceremonial first pitch.
