"Do know, that among Sox fans, I am the Cubs' number one fan", Obama said as he honored the World Series Champions. Cubs players filed into the White House East Room Monday for Obama's final ceremony for a championship sports team.
"There's sort of a sentimental connection that I have with the Cubs because of my dad", she said back in 2012. "I've talked to him about being DNC chair". Even sweeter for Obama is that the Cubs hail from his hometown. But even I was not insane enough to suggest that during these eight years, we would see the Cubs win the World Series. The first radio broadcast wouldn't happen for another two decades following the 1908 victory. But as Cubs president Theo Epstein pointed out, it wasn't the first time the team has visited. Players including newlywed Kris Bryant, recent retiree David Ross, shortstop Addison Russell and first baseman Anthony Rizzo posted some souvenir snapshots on Instagram.
When asked how an Italian boy from Hazleton got to play for the Young Men's Polish Association team, Barletta said, "I guess they just wanted to win".

Her husband Omar Mateen was shot dead by police after massacring 49 people in the gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida, on June 12. The two reportedly exchanged text messages on the night of the massacre; she asked him where he was and attempted to call him.
- Praising Theo Epstein as "one of the greatest, if not the greatest, general managers of all time", Obama said, "His is job is to quench droughts - 86 years in Boston, 108 in Chicago - he takes the reins of an organization that's wandering in the wilderness and delivers them to the promised land". It's not clear if Trump will frequent the courses at military bases in the Washington, D.C., area, where Obama devoted many of his fair-weather weekends, or if he'll prefer to hit the links that bear his own name. "I think we're all excited for it". Other elected officials from Chicago, White House staffers with Chicago ties and other well-connected Chicago folks are expected. But FLOTUS is a lifelong Cubs fan, and I will tell you.in the eight years that I've been here, we've hosted at least 50 teams. The decision, Arrieta insists, has nothing to do with politics. Donald Trump will assume the presidency Friday. The ace offered to help with the packing, too. He told the site he didn't vote in November.
"I made a lot of promises in 2008", the President said. It's not an anti-Hillary tweet. "If paying higher taxes is going to benefit the majority of society, I'm fine with that".
Comcast Sports Net reports that Arrieta couldn't make the trip due to family obligations, and insisted it had nothing to do with disliking President Obama.
