Okay, this isn't for everyone, but I can't let it pass.
The Chicago Cubs championship ceremony at the White House got in just under the Obama wire and takes place today (Monday) at 10 AM Los Angeles time. It will air live on the MLB Network and ESPN, or stream here at MLB.com.
In a nice touch, the team invited Cubs legend and Hall of Famer Billy Williams to accompany the team. He had other plans today for celebrating Martin Luther King Day, but cancelled this. This topped them all. "Going to see Obama, who is the first black president, and celebrating Martin Luther King's birthday -- it'll be perfect for me," he said.
Or -- as a public service -- if this code works, embedded here below.
The start of the ceremony is running late. But then, the Cubs waited 108 years to get here. What is another half hour or so...?
