President Obama welcomed world series champs, the Chicago Cubs, to the White House on Monday.


The Cubs finally won the world series after 108 years, about which Obama joked, “They said this day would never come. I will say to the Cubs, it took you long enough. I only have four days left. You’re just making it under the wire.”

“Even I was not crazy enough to suggest that during these eight years we would see the Cubs win the world series,” Obama remarked. “But I did say there has never been anything false about hope.”


Obama, who is a loyal Chicago White Sox fan, was presented with a number 44 jersey, lifelong passes to Wrigley Field and a “W” flag.
