GWB: Around the office [I used to talk with former press secretary] Ari Fleischer, a huge Yankees fan. I needled him about the Yankees. My brother Marvin is a sports fan, and we love to talk sports. Barney, the dog, when we're watching a ball game [laughs]. He's the only one who sits there and watches the games with me. I probably watch, try to catch part of a ball game, five days a week. After work, if I'm reviewing a speech or just want a little downtime, I'll have the ball game on in the background. Some people like to listen to opera—I like to have the ball game in the background.
SI: Any interest in getting back into baseball someday?
GWB: I don't think so. I will always be a fan, and I don't know what I'll do. I ran into Joe Morgan, who was one of my favorite ballplayers when he was with the Astros, and he asked me would I think about being a commissioner, and my immediate answer was no. And I think it's probably true.
