Update 3:19 p.m. Bet you never dreamed of this during the Johnnie LeMaster years: The Giants were at the White House today, yucking it up with the President.

The Chron’s Politics blog has a full transcript plus roster of attending politicos.

KGO’s got the entire video:

Yesterday, Ian Hill, our News Community Engagement Specialist, curated tweets and other web content about the event.

Update 1:45 p.m. CSN Bay Area live blog of the event is here.

Update 1:25 p.m. Bochy presented Obama with a Giants uniform with the number 44 (Obama is the 44th president of the U.S.) Somebody check eBay in an hour to see if it’s up there…

Update 1:20 p.m. Obama just said, “where’s the guy with the beard? I do fear it.” Then, “Michelle is very relieved the press is going to be talking about what someone else is wearing in the White House.”

Update 1:03 p.m. The Democratic elite-Giants nexus is prominent: You can see Ed Lee and Gavin Newsom sitting together, on the left. I also see Tom Ammiano, and I think Willie Brown. And Willie Mays. Plus Pelosi, Feinstein, and Leon Panetta are there.

Original post Comcast Sportsnet Bay Area is webcasting live your San Francisco Giants meeting with President Obama at the White House.

Check out how USA Today headlined this article about the event:

Obama to honor Brian Wilson, Giants at White House for World Series title

Jeez, what are they, the Beach Boys? Though I suppose a fixation on the performance-artist who moonlights as a relief pitcher is natural, in light of what you might call his flamboyant public appearances. I’m guessing a minimum of three secret-service agents assigned to Wilson for the duration of the event.
