Washington (CNN) - President Obama, a diehard Chicago White Sox fan, will test a different kind of diplomacy Monday when he hosts the New York Yankees at the White house.
Derek Jeter and the rest of the Yankees will be in town to celebrate last year's World Series victory. The Yankees' White House trip will be one of many events to mark their win.
Before stopping at the White House, players will take the World Series trophy to the Walter Reed Medical Center in the nation's capital, where they'll visit with wounded soldiers.
Obama has stayed true to his Chicago team. He recently wore a White Sox cap while throwing the first pitch at a home opener for the Washington Nationals.
Obama is a great ChiSox fan. Too bad he couldn't name a single member of the team a few weeks ago. No bother, I'm sure he can now. Just as long the name is loaded into his teleprompter...
Will he condemn them for their high salaries?
The Yankees are the best and don't ever forget that.
I find your definition of "die hard fan" puzzling.
Yes, he did wear a W-Sox hat when throwing out the first pitch, however when interviewed in the booth by the game broadcasters about his favorite W-Sox players he could not name one player.
But then again Hillary is a Yankee fan, once she ran for senate.
