On tonight's 6:00 p.m. SportsCenter — beginning shortly here on the East Coast — ESPN will air an interview of Barack Obama that was conducted by street-born puffmaster Stuart Scott. Some tidbits of the conversation:
Scott: If the Cubs and the White Sox both make it to the World Series?
Obama: I would be going.
Scott: Who would you root for?
Obama: Oh, that's easy. White Sox. I'm not one of these fair weather fans. You go to Wrigley Field, you have a beer, beautiful people up there. People aren't watching the game. It's not serious. White Sox, that's baseball. Southside.
Well… it's not quite calling Cubs fans "douchebags," but I suppose it'll do. There's more over at Awful Announcing if you don't have a television or an hour of your life to waste watching SportsCenter. It includes the “If your vice president had to be an athlete, who would you pick?” softball, which Obama whiffs on by picking Walter Payton, calling him "durable" in his answer. Might wanna qualify that when you talk about a dead guy, Barry.
