The Day Elvis Met Nixon.

Taillon. Huntington.

Elvis. Nixon.

Two great Americans.  It seemed odd to watch ace level pitcher Jameson Taillon trying on a Pitsburgh Pirates jersey this week. 

But then VH1 classic put it all in persepective for me.  Apparently Elvis met President Nixon too.  And snuck in a loaded handgun.

America is still the best county on earth.   

The Pirates might not be the worst baseball team in the world forever after all.
