Senate catering service spells Bobby Cox's name wrong
UPDATE: Better photos at the AJC.
The best baseball story of the week comes from Roll Call, which noted that two big Braves fans on the Hill -- Sens. Johnny Isakson (R-Ga.) and Jay Rockefeller (D-W.Va.) -- invited Atlanta manager Bobby Cox and his players and coaches for a nice little party in honor of his upcoming retirement.
When the cake wound up reading "Thanks for 50 Great Years Bobby Cocks," an Isakson spokeswoman of course blamed the Nats. Why don't you blame them for health care, too?
Isakson spokeswoman Sheridan Watson said that she ordered the confection from Restaurant Associates, the vendor that handles cafeteria services in the Capitol, and that Cox's name was spelled correctly in the e-mail exchange with the company.
"Whether the mistake was accidental or intentional, I don't know," Watson tells HOH. "Maybe someone employed by Restaurant Associates is a big Nationals fan."
Can't wait to see what congressional cake they produce if Chien-Ming Wang is ever invited to the Hill.
(Note: Changed the headline to put proper blame on the catering service and not the Senators themselves. I guess.)
