Morgan Freeman, occasional
movie president. wikipedia image.

That authoritative voice, that cool demeanor. It's everything you'd want in a president of the United States.
Yes, I'm talking about Morgan Freeman.
In one of his funnier Oscar-night lines, host Jon Stewart joked: "Normally, when you see a black man or a woman president an asteroid is about to hit the Statue of Liberty."
The Serra Padres scored early and often on their way to a 8-3 win over the Logan Colts Wednesday night at the East Bay Classic tournament.
Serra’s Kevin McAlindon, Tony Renda and Ryan Palermo each drove in a pair of runs for the victorious Pads.
Serra’s first inning rally started with a two-run single from Renda. Kevin McAlindon and David Diapola followed with an RBI each afterwards to chase Logan starting pitcher Roberto Padilla out of the game.
The scoring would not stop there however. Serra continued to onslaught the next inning by pushing across two more runs and taking a 6-0 lead.
