The 72 team *finally* gets its due as champions, with a trip to the Whitehouse to celebrate their achievement.
It didn't happen after the 72 season, at least in part, because the Nixon administration was involved in a few little things like, I dunno, watergate.
And it just didn't come together after that. But now the time has come and apparently all the living team members will be in attendance.
Except for Manny Fernandez, Jim Langer (who is heavily political), and Bob Keuchenberg.
Look their politics is what it is. But wtf? You don't take advantage of an opportunity to visit the office? Forget about the person and what you think about his politics.
This is an honor. Maybe Kooch does just need a hug after all. His comments and insistence that he can't / won't go only underscores his grumpiness.
Kudos to those who get it. And enjoy!!
If you want to watch it, you can go to whitehouse.gov/live around 2pm.
