Habeeb is taking precautions this time. Ben Tribbett isn’t here to drive him around. Tribbett of NotLarrySabatoblog fame and expected candidate for Virginia’s 31st District Senate seat was one of Habeeb’s chauffeurs during this years General Assembly session. Habeeb broke his foot shortly after the 2011 session started in pick-up basketball.
Lets just hope he doesn’t injure someone else either. He needs every constituent vote he can get. Keep it in the strike zone Habeeb!
Below is Habeeb’s press release:
SALEM – Delegate Greg Habeeb will throw out the ceremonial first pitch at the Salem Red Sox Sunday, May 1st home game against Potomac at 4:05 p.m.
Habeeb, who considered himself athletic 15 years and 25 lbs ago, is asking as many Roanoke Valley doctors as possible to attend the game.
“I feel like throwing out the first pitch will be a lot of fun,” said Habeeb. “But the last time I tried something like this it didn’t end well, so we need to take as many precautions as possible. If some doctors are there, it won’t be a bad thing.”
Habeeb broke his ankle during a pick-up basketball game shortly after being elected to the House of Delegates in January. He worked a large part of the General Assembly’s Legislative Session in a walking boot.
Habeeb (R-Salem) represents the City of Salem and part of Southwest Roanoke County.
