"W" Meets With The Red Sox

We need a little break from my frustration over Obama. Bush honors Red Sox at White House ceremony

WASHINGTON - President Bush has honored the Red Sox for their 2007 World Series victory with a White House ceremony, calling the team "wise enough" to maintain a core group of players who know how to win.
Players, coaches and the team’s owners gathered with Bush today for the second time in the past four years. Members of the 2004 World Series champion team also met with Bush, a former managing partner of the Texas Rangers.
The president referred to Red Sox pitcher Jon Lester’s successful battle against cancer as an inspiration to many people.
Lester began the 2007 season on a rehab minor league assignment, but recovered and won Game 4 of the World Series against the Colorado Rockies.
Red Sox players also will visit patients at the Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington before returning to spring training.
