The Red Sox should visit the WH for the traditional celebration

Normally I think sports teams who win championships should not be forced into the traditional meet-and-greet with Donald of Orange. But in this case, the Sox should make an exception. The whole team needs to visit the Oval Office for the traditional photo opportunity, bring him a Sox jersey with the number 45 on it and his name on the back, and serve a traditional New England luncheon of baked scrod and white clam chowder.

This has nothing to do with respect for the sacred traditions of our national pastime and everything to do with the fact Trump despises the Red Sox, who issued his Yankees a 15-run shellacking in Game 3 of the ALDS.

1. I don't think they should go. 45 would just use it as a photo op.

And faux news would sell it as a positive thing.

3. Kind of doubt that an invite will be forthcoming, anyway.

He'll make some excuse to avoid honoring them.

4. Spanky will need to invite them first.

I'll be mildly surprised if he does, especially after that idiotic tweet the other night.

6. Not really

Trump will suck up to anyone for a photo op. He's a jock sniffer.

10. Join in with Steph Curry and Lebron James and Colin K....a sports trifecta.

 

Basketball, football and now baseball. And explicitly say why. He's a lunatic on the loose. Make Our Sports Heroes Great....again, and again and again and again.

He's further sullied himself with sliming our American pastime over and over...National Sports. That's the only kind of Nationalist I want to see...black, brown, Asian or white.

13. Cora was asked about this at the post game conference.

He said, and I paraphrase, "this is not the time to talk about this". Cora, when he was hired, had one demand in his salary (he is amongst the lowest paid managers, btw) and that was a commitment by the RS to send relief supplies to his hometown in PR.

Yeah, I don't think Cora has any interest in showing up at Trump's WH. A lot of the players are from the PR/DR/Aruba, etc. pretty sure they will follow suit.
