The President Greets the Yanks…Obama gives Props where Props are Due!!!

The Pres and the Skipper

I love America and I love being an American. I am blown away by the achievments of these great men. How a group of rebels could create a country and a system of government that more than two hundred years later still embodies the hopes and dreams of all people from all over the world, that is pretty incredible.

But what is more incredible is too see the leader of the free world honor the GREATEST BASEBALL FRANCHISE ever. It is just like the big cherry on top of all our American freedom.

When you see Joe Girardi standing behind the Presidential Podium, with the Presidential seal in full view,  addressing a room full of reporters in the White House and President Obama standing not behind his presidential podium but rather next to the podium,  so HE could be addressed by the Yankee skipper…you know its a damn good day!!!

Obama and Girardi…27 Titles Deep!!

Obama said it has often been painful to watch Mariano Rivera and the Yankees win titles.

“For a White Sox fan like me, its painful to watch Mariano’s cutter. … Although, I do remember 2005, so don’t get too comfortable,” said Obama, referring to the White Sox’s World Series title five years ago.

Obama added that “nothing beats that Yankee tradition” as the large crowd gathered in the room applauded.

Obama gives Jeter a shout out!

During the event, Obama praised Jeter, saying the shortstop “epitomizes the best of the Yankees tradition.”

President Obama greeted the World Champs this afternoon with some pretty funny soundbites, I cant imagine what it feels like to be Derek  or Mariano and getting great shout outs from the Prez…that is just so damn cool.
