President Obama Praises the World Champion New York Yankees

Monday brought the ultimate acknowledgment of their six-game Fall Classic victory over the Phillies, as President Barack Obama welcomed the Yankees into a jam-packed East Room of the White House to celebrate their triumph one final time.

“It’s been nine years since your last title, which must have felt like an eternity for Yankees fans,” Obama said. “I think other teams would be just fine with a spell like that — the Cubs, for example.

I love that Obama, a White Sox fan, worked in a dig at the Cubs.
