I watched the video of the Giants’ appearance at the White House today. A day doesn’t go by lately without me grumbling under my breath about what the President is up to. But seeing the World Champs, watching the President give his joshing, casual speech, seeing Willie Mays sitting behind Obama, damn if I didn’t get choked up for approximately the 8,234th time since last November 1.
I think my favorite part might have been when President Obama was shaking everyone’s hand, and he got to Mike Murphy. Mike Murphy shaking hands with the President of the United States at the White House!
I know it’s for show, I know tomorrow I’ll return to muttering about the President. But today, for 20 minutes or so, we all got a break.
