Giants Snubbed by Obama? Team Gets No Congratulatory Call

The San Francisco Giants' 56-year wait for a World Series title is over.

But the team is apparently still waiting for something else: a call from the President of the United States.

According to KNTV, President Barack Obama did not call to congratulate the World Series champions, as is customary, after their series-clinching win.

With Democrats poised to suffer losses in the midterm elections, Obama likely had a lot on his mind Monday night. Apparently one of those things was not the Giants.

Giants spokeswoman Staci Slaughter told the station that the team gave the White House a list of phone numbers, including the private line to manager Bruce Bochy's office.

As of Monday night, no call.

KNTV notes that although the president is a White Sox fan, he has cheered for the Giants in recent weeks. During a fundraising stop in the Bay Area last month, he frequently referenced the team's playoff run.
