Some Non-Partisan Love for Obama

First let me say this has NOTHING to do with politics. This is not a forum for discussion about anything happening on Capitol Hill... Until they start talking baseball.

The New York Yankees headed to Washington this week in the customary visit to the White House, and their Assistant GM, Jean Afterman, committed a delicious faux pas.

When the leader of the free world picked up the Yanks' World Series trophy, Afterman quipped "Let him hold it. He may never get another chance again." Ummm, that's the PRESIDENT you're talking to, and even if you don't like him, you owe him a modicum of respect.

But no worries, Red Sox Nation, Obama's not a famous orator for nothing, and he had the perfect retort up his sleeve:

"And you wonder why the other teams don't root for you."

Maybe he can't throw, but he dissed New York... Hell, that alone has to help his approval ratings.

LOVE it. No one roots for New York because that is the attitude they project, not only through blunt comments like Afterman's, but in the entitled lifestyle exhibited by their management, fans, and players.

So if you're a Red Sox fan, put down your political leanings for a day. Embrace Obama, if for no other reason than his schooling the Yankees... On an offday, there's not much else you can do.

Also, I just want to apologize for being MIA lately. We're pushing toward the finish line this semester, and work has been piling up. A few more weeks, and I'll be much more devoted. PROMISE.
