Crosstown Classic, DC Style

President-elect Barack Obama wears his White Sox loyalty on his sleeve, as most people probably know by now. Not only has he thrown out the first pitch at a White Sox game (and may do it again), but he couldn't help but tweak Cubs fans with his assessment of their interest in their team and the game. This week, he took it another step when he (or someone who works for him) thought it would be funny/cute/clever to split the press corps seating assignments into a "Cubs" section and a "White Sox" section, although from this account it seems White Sox-friendly reporters got the short end of the stick. If nothing else, at least the rest of the world is learning how deep ths Cubs-vs-White Sox thing goes.
