"We had to do it, they're dropping like flies"

McCain pointing at Bush
John McCain to Bush in debate: "you're going down in marbles, junior." Gary Bauer, middle, steers clear of the incident.
Queens, NY (Streetplay newsfeed, 1/28/2000) - CEO Mick Greene announced today that the marbles competition of the Presidential Pentathlon 2000 has been moved up to February 2, 2000. Other events in the pentathlon have been moved up as well.

In a prepared statement delivered at the advance ticket office at Shea Stadium, Greene cited Orrin Hatch's early departure from the race as a motivating factor. "There was a lot pressure from the remaining candidates to move up the events. Let's face it, some of these guys will need to play catch-up after the New Hampshire primary. It was felt that having the competition the day after the primary could give Tuesday's losers a needed boost."

Upon hearing that the hopscotch event was being moved to 2/14 (Valentine's Day), referree and soon-to-be New York senatorial candidate Hillary Clinton was actually pleased. "I had nothing planned for that night, anyway--this works out great!"

Republican candidate George W. Bush was the sole dissenter in the schedule changes. "I didn't want the changes since I'm going to win no matter when the games are held, but I acquiesced in the name of good sportsmanship."
