Wolf Blitzer Could Only Sum Up Michelle Obama's Speech With An Awkward Baseball Reference

When Michelle Obama's rousing speech at the Democratic National Convention concluded tonight, CNN's Wolf Blitzer was so flummoxed, all he could manage was a bumbling baseball reference that on paper seems fine but, when spoken, came off as if he didn't know, as the words were coming out of his mouth, that a grand slam is much better than a home run. Like, four times as good, you might say. Wolf doesn't really convey that with his comparison. Quite the opposite, but he is a die-hard basketball guy, so we'll cut him some slack. [CNN]
