George W. Bush can add one key contribution to his post-White House career: photobombing a sports broadcast in a video that promptly lit up the Internet.

Fox Sports Southwest’s Emily Jones was working a live broadcast of the Philadelphia Phillies—Texas Rangers game Wednesday night in Arlington when the former President happened to roll through. Beverage in hand, he popped up onscreen to say “hey.”

Leading the Rangers as a managing partner was Bush’s first continuous role in the public eye before becoming the governor of Texas and then a two-term President. He remains a loyal Texas Rangers fan.

Online, people obsessed over the way he casually crashed the Fox Sports report.
