an update now at the link in the OP....
Editor's note: President Obama did, indeed, call the world champion San Franciso Giants on Tuesday. Among the talking points was whether or not magic resided in Brian Wilson's beard. The White House version of the call is here.
i hate when high profile people try to pretend like theyre into something they arent. someone just handed Obama a card that said "tell them congrats on winning for the first time in 56 years, and make a corny joke about "brian wilson" (a pitcher) and his beard
nobody outside the west coast knew anything about this team or its players. we played all our games after they went to bed, and the entire eastern seaboard didnt even watch the WS because the Yankees, Mets, Phillies, or Red Sox werent in it.
i have a hard time believing that Obama, who couldnt even name 5 players on the White Sox, even though we was supposedly a "die hard white sox fan", knew anything about the Giants before he was briefed on what to say to them in a phone call.
