Obama’s been getting the name of his supposed favorite ballpark wrong for years. Flashback July 16, 2009:
President Obama’s lordly attitude and effete bearing would be more than welcome there than on hard-edged 35th Street, but no doubt he wishes to keep his manufactured South Side “cred” and remains aligned with the White Sox.

Really, it does not matter in the long run if our president is neither an exceptional athlete nor even a casual fan of some team in his adopted hometown.

It stinks of emptiness and desperation.
Actually, it just stinks.
