Harry Reid Professes His Love for Greg Maddux (Video)
Posted at 12:46 p.m. on Jan. 9
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid took to the Senate floor Wednesday to congratulate fellow Nevadan and eighth-winningest pitcher in Major League Baseball history, Greg Maddux, for his induction into the National Baseball Hall of Fame — and for being such a “nice man.”
During the tribute, Reid recalled Maddux’s loyalty and humor in a fitting anecdote from his last re-election race, when the Democratic leader phoned the jock on the golf course to ask him to be a “Republican for Reid.” After the “Mad Dog” confirmed he’d go to bat for the senator, Reid turned the subject over to the pro’s golf game. “You gonna break 80 today?” he asked.
Maddux’s answer? “If you leave me alone, I can break 70.”
