(CNN) - Derek Jeter and the rest of the New York Yankees are coming to the White House next Monday to celebrate last year's World Series victory with President Obama, according to White House aides.

The Yankees are stopping at the White House next week because on Tuesday the team starts a three-game series against the nearby Baltimore Orioles.

Obama recently wore a cap from his beloved Chicago White Sox while throwing out the first pitch at the home opener for the Washington Nationals.

    Yeah right CNN Obama is a real Chicago White Sox fan. Oh, "his beloved Chicago White Sox" team. If that's the case why is it Obama couldn't even answer simple questions like the name of team members.
    This is pretty much how the interview went.
    ***********************************************************
    Spoken by Obama...

    "You know uh ..... I ... I thought that ... uh .... you know," Obama stalled. " ... The truth is a lot of the Cubs I like too! But, uh ... I did not become a Sox fan until I moved to Chicago. Because I uh .... I was growing up in Hawaii so I ended up actually being an Oakland A's fan."

    Hmmmm,not much of great speaker without his teleprompter now is he.

    Are they invited so since they all make over $250K and Obozo can shake them down for more tax money to "share the wealth?" Is that president of the SEIU still there staying in the Lincoln bedroom so he can participate in the shakedown and hand the money over to his members directly?
