[Ed. – Who says he was joking?]
President Joe Biden met at the White House on Friday with the 2020 World Series champions, the Los Angeles Dodgers.
In a speech, while the team stood behind him, Biden talked about Dodger greats from the past — Sandy Koufax and Fernando Valenzuela — and then joked about his age.
“But I’m only 37,” Biden told the Dodgers.
“But the Dodgers are a lot more than a baseball club. They really are,” Biden said. “They’re a pillar of American culture and American progress. And that’s for real.
“The team that brought us the voice of Vin Scully and Sandy — the arm of Sandy Koufax and Fernando Valenzuela — and I was talking with staff and they said, ‘I want to teach you how to pronounce that name,’” said Biden. “I said, ‘I watched him pitch.’ But I’m only 37.
