Winning the World Series just wasn't enough.
The retired manager of the St. Louis Cardinals told a local radio station that his team never got the traditional phone call from the White House after their 6-2 Series win over the Texas Rangers last week.
Tony La Russa told CBS affiliate KMOX that amid the celebration last week, "We never did get a call."

That's because baseball is an American sport and Obama is a citizen of the world.
Baseball is the American past time. Can’t expect a moslem educated in Indonesia to appreciate that. We’re about to go through another WH Christmas slighting season.
Too bad there isn’t a ‘Like’ button on here.
Not his voter base.
Wear that NON-call as a BADGE of Honor! Be Thankful. You must NOT have been of any use to the ONE.
Not a Cardinal or Tony fan, but, it’s things like this that simply add to the image of incompetence of the current administration.
Who’d WANT a call from Hussein? I can’t imagine.
If Obama were to call me, I’m not so sure I’d want to answer the phone.
Ron Washington would have gotten a call.
He was too busy fundraising.
I’m sure that BO was so disappointed that Texas did not win - after all, we do seem to be his fav state!
Let me guess: someone in the Cardinal’s organization or on the team once made a contribution to a Republican somewhere?
To paraphrase Bill Parcells “Obama wouldn’t know if a baseball was stuffed with feathers or blown up”.
I believe both Tony LaRussa and Albert Pujols spoke at a Glenn Beck rally - that’s probably reason enough for this bunch in the White House.
What does that even mean? They make it sound like LaRussa's whining about it. He was asked a question, he answered it. Seemed like he didn't even realize it until the interviewer asked him about it. And knowing what we know about Tony, a call from the man who's destroying the country he loves what the furthest thing from his mind last weekend.
Fox News is sucking more and more every day.
I don’t see the big deal. Who cares if the president calls the winner of a game or not?
That’s it. For someone like Obama, so concerned with himself, one would think he would want another chance to appear Presidential. With an election coming, this is one thing he could do that would be easy and almost guranteed to be a plus for him. He, and his people, are idiots.
