Cubs to Visit White House Monday

Related Topics: White House, Chicago Cubs

You can read all manner of political statements in between the lines of the announcement that the Cubs will be visiting the White House prior to Donald Trump’s inauguration. I’m not going to stop you from doing so, but the fact of the matter is that the timing is really a matter of convenience. With the organization already gathered in Chicago this weekend for the Cubs Convention and Monday being Martin Luther King Jr Day, it’s just a lot easier to coordinate a trip at this point.

I have no doubt that there are some other complications that will be avoided by paying a visit to the Oval Office sooner rather than later, though I’m not sure how heavily those things weighed in the matter.
