Ending a longstanding American tradition of calling the winning World Series team to congratulate them, President Barack Obama failed to call the San Francisco Giants after San Francisco beat the Texas Rangers 3-1 in Game 5 and capture its first World Series title since 1954.
Giants spokeswoman Staci Slaughter tells KNTV the champion team has yet to hear from Mr. Obama.
Slaughter says team management gave the White House the private line into manager Bruce Bochy’s office, as well as other numbers for Obama to get in touch — but so far, nothing.
Apparently, the president was too busy giving an interview to American Idol host, Ryan Seacrest, as reported in the Huffington Post.
