WASHINGTON (AP) — President Obama is calling the Boston Red Sox World Series win “therapeutic medicine for the whole city.”

The president chatted about last week’s Red Sox victory as he gathered with business leaders in the White House Roosevelt Room to push for immigration reform.

The Red Sox won their first championship at home in 95 years, defeating the St. Louis Cardinals in six games. The win came six months after the Boston Marathon bombings.

Obama is a fan of the Chicago White Sox so he didn’t pick a favorite in the series. But he told the business leaders, quote, “To see it end that way is amazing.”
