The President said he enjoyed watching the game and congratulated the whole organization, including the pitching staff and young stars Madison Bumgarner and Buster Posey for their composure under pressure. The President also mentioned that he wanted to find out if there really was magic in closer Brian Wilson’s beard. The Giants invited the President to a home game and the President said he looked forward to congratulating the team in person at the White House.
