With criticisms over the oil spill coming left and right, it's been a rough week for President Obama. He certainly could use a breather.
Perhaps he'll get a bit of relief at tonight's ballgame at Nationals Park in D.C.
Obama's team, the Chicago White Sox face the Washington Nationals in D.C. tonight giving him the perfect opportunity to take in a game.
The White House gave a non-committal answer when asked if he'd attend.
"We'll just have to see," deputy press secretary Bill Burton said.
If the President does decide to attend, he'll be in for an exciting game. Nationals pitcher Stephen Strasburg will be pitching in only his third major league start. He already has a 2-0 record, including a history-making move: he is the first pitcher to strike out at least 11 batters without issuing any walks in his pro debut.
The 21-year-old player has definitely been turning heads. In fact, national network TBS changed their broadcast schedule to feature the Nationals—Indians game on Sunday.
Maybe Obama will make a little time in his schedule, too.
