The Democrats lost to the Republicans by a score of 10-0.
Who else was unaware that the Congressional Baseball Game was even a thing? Apparently it was started back in 1909, but at this point it just kinda feels like watch dad hit mom at the dinner table.
All in all, it's a baseball game. Friendly competition right? Nah. And things got fairly chippy in last night's iteration of the game. California Congresswoman Linda Sanchez hit a single, and as she was coming out for a pinch runner she tossed up the middle finger in the direction of the entire republican bench.
A sign of poor sportsmanship, no doubt but in the spirit of this intense rivalry is anyone surprised? Again, not a good look when your team goes on to get trounced 10-0.
I'm genuinely curious, can fans buy tickets to this thing? Can you buy merch or apparel? This is the weirdest, most intriguing thing we've done as a country
and I need to know everything about it.
