President Bush awarded a Congressional Gold Medal posthumously to Jackie Robinson at a ceremony in Washington attended by the baseball greatís family. Robinson's widow, Rachel Robinson, accepted the medal moments ago saying it "confirms what we know. Jackie Robinson stands as an heroic role model for Americans..." Bush will also honor the Red Sox this afternoon as the World Series champs visit the White House. Live coverage of the Sox visit is expected to begin shortly.

Now I have to choose between watching the Red Sox visit the WH or a webcast of two stray dogs making puppies. Oh, hell. Who am I kidding? The dogs will be much more entertaining.:cool:
