The White House Press Corps is buzzing on twitter tonight. Barack Obama is at the Nationals game tonight as they face his beloved Chicago White Sox.
Hats off to Mike Memoli, he was the first one I saw ask a week or so if Obama was going to make a trip to this Nationals game tonight. It is the perfect night for him to show up at the ballpark. Not only is his favorite team in town, it is also "Strasmas." If you don't follow baseball "Strasmas" is the name given to each start made by the young star Stephen Strasburg who has taken the baseball world by storm.
Anyone know whether this is the first time his family has accompanied him to a sporting event since he became President? Obama's love for sports is well documented. Now I know that a certain segment of the population will be up in arms over Obama enjoying himself while the Oil Spill is going on but those are the same people who will complain about anything and everything this man does. I mean, I wouldn't be surprised if they complain about the amount of oxygen he takes in on an average day!
By the way, how lucky is Sam Youngman of "The Hill"? He was the pool reporter for Obama's opening day trip to Nationals Park as well. One of the great perks of the job.
