Keeping all politics aside, do the Sox get to go to the White House anytime soon?

Tough to say. I thought teams stopped by when they were "in the area" but the Sox don't play in Baltimore until the end of July.

George and Barbara Bush were at those game when the Sox won. I think the Bush family has seen enough of the Sox.

Anything less than having a picture on the Wheaties boxes of the whole team with the president in front of the White House is unacceptable.

Yeah, seriously.

Hasn't each and every baseball show on every channel selected the Sox as having the best off season thus far too? I've heard guys like Gammons (uh huh, I know) and others call Kenny one of the best GMs in the game today.

We won our World Series, now we will get our respect.

They'll go to the White House when they're in Baltimore. It doesn't matter if it's not "newsworthy" anymore. It'll still be special to the team and us fans. I just feel bad for the guys that were on the team that won't get to go.

Didn't Farmio get the team into the White House a couple years ago when they were playing on the east coast? I thought I remember him and John talking about the experience. Not sure if they met W.

RESPEK: A concept so uncommon, that if you look it up in the dictionary, you'll find it doesn't even exist.

True, but the original poster in no way insinuated that the Sox were not getting respect by not having been invited yet. He just asked an innocent question.
