Obama to Giants: FU

Crickets:Wrong number? Obama doesn't call champion Giants - San Jose Mercury News

SAN JOSE -- Amid beer and champagne flowing in the clubhouse of the San Francisco Giants late Monday, one thing was missing.

The president. Not the president of the ball club. The President of the United States.

Giants players and personnel thought they'd hear from President Barack Obama by telephone after San Francisco beat the Texas Rangers 3-1 in Game 5 to capture its first World Series title since 1954.

But Giants spokeswoman Staci Slaughter tells KNTV they have yet to take that call.

Slaughter says team personnel gave the White House the private line into manager Bruce Bochy's office, as well as other numbers for Obama to get in touch -- but so far, nothing.

The Giants, though, are used to waiting.

It's been 56 years since their last series title.

Hates baseball? Check. Hates Giants? Check. Hates San Francisco? Check. Hates America? Check and double check.

Your Say

I guess Teleprompter Boy won't be regaling San Franciscans with anymore comments about bitter Pennsylvanian 'Clingers' anytime soon, huh?

What a relief for the Giants!!
I mean, who wanted to be the poor bastard that had to grit their teeth and listen to that smarmy asshole?

The Bamster was too busy calling others enemies to call the Giants.
