It seems everyone has something to say about Kevin Youkilis leaving Boston and joining the White Sox. And now the president has chimed in.
Speaking at a fundraising event at Symphony Hall in Boston last night, President Obama thanked the city for sending third baseman Kevin Youkilis to the White Sox, his hometown baseball team.
"And finally Boston, I just want to say, thank you for Youkilis," Obama said. "I'm just saying, he's going to have to had to change the color of his Sox, ha, ha, ha, ha."
The chuckles in the crowd quickly turned to a round of boos for the president.
"I didn't think I'd get any boos out of here but..." Obama said jokingly to the room of wealthy backers. "I should not have brought up baseball, I understand. My mistake, my mistake. You've got to know your crowd."
