President Barack Obama jumps on Cubs bandwagon; Cuban OF signs with club


Now, before we get started, I know what you’re thinking – the men in the picture are not the Chicago Cubs, in fact, those are the 2013 Boston Red Sox with President Barack Obama.

If you look closely, you can see a familiar face standing behind our Commander and Chief. That man is veteran and Jon Lester‘s primary catcher, David Ross with a rather serious facial expression.

According to the Chicago Tribune, Chicago’s own Barack Obama is pulling for Joe Maddon and the Cubs to win the World Series this season since the Chicago White Sox failed to make the postseason.

I understand there’s a ton of people out there who do not support the man who is in charge of our country, but it’s nice to know that he’s finally jumping on the bandwagon.

Obama was born in Hawaii, but worked as a civil rights attorney and even taught constitutional law in Chicago which explains his love for the White Sox and Chicago Bears.

Before he became President, Senator Obama made a cameo on Monday Night Football before the Bears took the field against the St. Louis Rams eight years ago, wrapping it up by pulling on a team hat.

Chicago would end up falling to the Peyton Manning and the Indianapolis Colts in the Super Bowl that year.

Hopefully, the Cubs won’t suffer the same fate as the 2006 Chicago Bears as they head to St. Louis to take on the 100 game winning St. Louis Cardinals at Busch Stadium.

Both Lester and Ross will be in the lineup with John Lackey starting for Mike Matheny‘s powerhouse of a club that has had its ups and downs with the North Siders this year.

While these two clubs get ready for the N.L.D.S., the Cubs went out and signed themselves another top prospect after landing Cuban outfielder, Eddy Julio Martinez on a $3 million deal.

Martinez was expected to sign with the defending World Series Champions San Francisco Giants, but the deal fell through, resulting in Theo Epstein and Jed Hoyer to swoop in with an offer.

This acquisition will surely put not only the Cardinals but the rest of the league on notice as they continue to stack their top-notch farm system with another young talented player.
