Fittingly on inauguration week - Stephen Rose over at Huffington Post, wrote a great piece drawing on the parallels between the President and CC Sabathia.
"It got me thinking about expectations. Sabathia must be the most expected person in baseball. And surely Barack is the most expected person period...Sometimes, when challenges rise, a certain grace emerges, some extra positivity to help achieve a good result...We are all in the same boat. The challenges we face are no less important than theirs when seen... from a distance. And our overcoming is no less momentous".
I really think this is a valid comparison and it'll be interesting to see how both lefties perform on their respective hills!
