Boston Red Sox Visit White House, President Bush

Say what you will about President Bush, you can't argue that he's not a big sports fan. He seems to enjoy these visits by our championship teams more than a lot of more important daily activities.

Yesterday the Boston Red Sox paid a visit to the White House and Dubbya was in rare form. You've probably heard his comment on Manny Ramirez already (you can see it here) - "Manny Ramirez couldn't be here today ... I guess his grandmother died, again." Several ooohs, followed by many a laugh.

I enjoyed his exchange in regards to Dice-K (above):

"We welcome Japan's Dice-K here to the South Lawn. His press core is bigger than mine. And we both have trouble answering questions in English."

He also thanked Jonathan Papelbon for wearing pants.

Well played, 43, well played.
