Hey, Obama, Where’s that Congratulatory World Series Phone Call???
I’m sure this has nothing to do with Tony Larussa and Albert Pujols hooking up with Glenn Beck at Lincoln Park last year. Yeah, nothing whatsoever… /sarcasm.
Of course, now that the cat is out of the bag, Obama will no doubt go into damage control mode and invite the Cardinals to drink a few home brewed beers out on the White House lawn:
Cards Snubbed By Obama? No Traditional White House Call Following Game 7 Win
Charlie Brennan, Brett Blume
ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – Was President Barack Obama too busy watching the “Operation Repo” marathon or something else last Friday night?
When KMOX host Charlie Brennan asked now-retired St. Louis Cardinals manager Tony La Russa how the traditional call of congratulations from the White House went, La Russa suddenly realized that…it never happened.
“That’s a good point, I hadn’t really even thought about that,” replied a surprised-sounding La Russa, who can be forgiven for having a few other things on his mind over the past week. “As we were getting into the World Series we had a call from the White House to make sure they had the correct number for my office.”
But as the wild, champagne-drenched celebration of the team’s 11th World Series title was going on in the locker room, that phone never rang.
“We never did get a call,” La Russa said.
And all this despite the fact that the First Lady, Michelle Obama, was in town for Game 1 of the World Series.
