AROUND THE WEB:

— The World Series champion Cubs visited the White House Monday for the last champion team visit of Barack Obama’s presidency.

“They said this day would never come,” Obama began his remarks during the ceremony. “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. But I did say there has never been anything false about hope.”

Cubs team president and former Red Sox general manager Theo Epstein joked about Obama’s White Sox fandom, granting him a “pardon.”

“We have taken the liberty of offering you a midnight pardon,” Epstein said. “We welcome you with open arms today to the Cubs family.”

“Among Sox fans I’m the Cubs’ No. 1 fan,” Obama responded.

Former Red Sox pitcher and current Cub Jon Lester was not in attendance at the White House and explained his absence was not political:

 

 

 

QUOTE OF THE DAY: “Yeah, as you know I’m not on SnapFace and all that, I don’t really get those. I’m just really worried about getting our team ready to go. I’m not really too worried about what they put on InstantChat, or whatever it is.” —Bill Belichick, on Antonio Brown’s Facebook Live video from inside the Steelers’ locker room

HAPPY BIRTHDAY: Tyler Zeller (27)

Usually, the best defense wins the Super Bowl. Do the Patriots have the best defense remaining? And even if they do, does it matter when they have the best QB remaining? Some more focus on some crap talking Seahawks. Also, what is Crackle?
