In a tradition that when athletes win a championship or gold medal of some sort, they get to visit the White House and meet with the President of the U.S. Today, the Yankees did it. (Side note: Four Yankees have met with three different Presidents).
Yankees assistant GM was standing next to Pres., Obama with the World Series trophy and told him: "Hold it, you may not get another chance."
Obama: And you wonder why the other teams don't root for them.
Ah, good point.
