Obama On Brian Wilson's Beard: 'I Do Fear It'

The San Francisco Giants made a visit to the White House on Monday afternoon and among President Obama's remarks was a startling admission.

He, too, fears the beard of star closer Brian Wilson.

"And then there’s the guy with the beard," Obama said. "I do fear it. Have you guys seen the SportsCenter ad where it's -- ESPN -- where it starts doing a dance?"

After commenting on Wilson's outfit at the 2011 ESPY awards and the sea captain costume he wore on "Lopez Tonight," Obama went on to praise him and said that he's "one of the most dominant closers in baseball."

He certainly has been dominant in 2011 thus far, racking up 31 saves with a 2.83 ERA.
