Dibs to Obama: Who was one of your favorite White Sox players?...
- while being interviewed by Washington Nationals booth announcers Bob Carpenter and Rob Dibble,
- President Barack Obama couldn’t
- muster up a single name.
The Commander-in-Chief, who has referred to himself a “White Sox kid” during the interview, was hard pressed to name a favorite player on a team that has been around since the late 19th century.
- Obama went on to admit that growing up in Hawaii he was an Oakland Athletics fan and didn’t start to root for the White Sox until he got to Chicago and lived near the old Comiskey Park.
Isn’t the political expediency of sports amazing?"
