Well, considering the lefty's throwing motion, it was more like a slow lob.
"It's been nine years since your last title -- which must have felt like an eternity for Yankees fans. I think other teams would be just fine with a spell like that," the president said at the White House. "The Cubs, for example."
Obama went on to talk about how hard it was to see Yankees closer Mariano Rivera pitch against his White Sox and lauded the franchise for both its tradition and rabid fan base.
You'll remember Obama's baseball prowess was recently called in to question when he seemed to skirt a question about his favorite White Sox player. Or was it his calling old Comiskey Park "Cominskey"?
Does this jab get you fired up, Cubs fans? Or is it harmless and uninspiring as the new BP Crosstown Cup?
