Tommy and the Pope (Seriously!)

This just in from the front office at the Dodgers:

President George W. Bush and First Lady Laura Bush have invited Hall of Fame Manager and Special Advisor to the Chairman Tommy Lasorda to attend the arrival ceremony of His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI, it was announced today.  Lasorda will attend the arrival ceremony tomorrow at 10:30 a.m. on the South Lawn of the White House, as well as a private dinner hosted by President and Mrs. Bush later that evening at the White House.

So as many of you know, I (along with a stellar collection of some of my fellow Dodgers bloggers) had the opportunity to meet Tommy last Friday and hear his hilarious takes on past Dodger greats and not-so-greats.  What do you think the odds are that he’ll break into a speech to the Pope on the “intelligence” levels of former players Steve Sax and Ken Landreaux as Tommy did with us?  Check out the video that our friends Steve Sax and Orel shot if you’re in for a laugh.


Oh, maybe he’ll give the Pope and the Prez his patented “God Bless Tommy Lasorda and God bless the Los Angeles Dodgers” exit speech!  That would be so sweet.  Maybe our buddy Josh Rawitch over at the Dodgers can hook it up so a few of us Dodgers bloggers can attend the dinner as well (we’ll work for Dodger Dogs).
