But an eephus pitch? Well, judge not on such things, it's a difficult toss, but maybe an eephus pitch makes sense since he's always trying to use subterfuge to get things done.
The Chi Sox
And wasn't that a brilliant question from the color man (Rob Dibble?). Wonder if he made the conscious acknowledgment ahead of time that Obama probably wasn't a White Sox fan "growing up" since he attended school in Indonesia and Hawaii, which would amount to a set up question, or whether it was a spur-of-the-moment thing? Obama was forced to admit he wasn't always a fan before arriving in the south side--nothing wrong with that--but he stumbled mightily in getting there with the image getting a bit frayed in the process.
Oh well, surely Obama's crack advisory staff are looking into the color man (can we say that anymore?) to see if they can find anything fishy. Just in case. And maybe at the next prime time press conference Helen Thomas can ask him to name his favorite Oakland A's player 'growing up'. At the current pace he'll have plenty of time to research it. Or heck with that--Gibbs can just Twitter out the answer much faster.
