George W. Bush Dodges Foul Ball At Texas Ranger Game [VIDEO]

One of the most surreal moments of George W. Bush's presidency happened when a Iraqi reporter threw a shoe at him during a press conference.

Love him or hate him, we can all agree that Bush showed excellent reflexes when he dodged the shoe, which was headed straight for his face.

Those reflexes got another test during Monday night's baseball game between the Texas Rangers and the Chicago White Sox.  Bush was sitting in a front row box when a foul ball headed in his direction.  While he did flinch a little bit, the 43rd president basically maintained his cool (as opposed to some of the other folks who were in the box) and allowed the ball to bounce harmlessly in front of him.

Read on to see a video of Bush's latest dodge, and the infamous shoe incident.

Check out the horrifying video after the jump; and for all you youngsters out there reading this, here is a list of every single Beatles song ever released, you know, just in case.
