Paul Goldschmidt thrilled the Chase Field crowd Saturday with a three run jack in the bottom of the seventh to give the Diamondbacks a 13-7 lead over the Dodgers. And no one was more thrilled than Arizona senator John McCain.
That right there is what baseball is all about. It’s about old men getting insanely excited over home runs that make the score 13-7 instead of 10-7.
And after the game, John McCain went home and had himself the best cup of applesauce he’s ever had. And then he turned on CSI and nodded right off. It was a truly beautiful day for the senator.
The Diamondbacks would go on to win the game 18-7. That’s an old fashioned butt whupping right there. John McCain hasn’t seen anything like that since the great cattle stampede of 1948.
