The title of this gallery almost speaks for itself. Manny Ramirez, a player as equally likely to be applauded for his talent and condemned for his antics, is now a member of the Chicago White Sox. Take a trip down memory lane with Manny by your side. Just be warned, he'll have to take a call in the Green Monster at some point.

WASHINGTON, Aug. 31 (UPI) -- President Barack Obama, who expressed approval of the Oval Office's decor when he took office, has had his office redecorated, White House officials said.

The makeover was done while the first family was on vacation, and was completed in time for Obama's address to the nation on Iraq Tuesday evening, The New York Times reported.

Obama is likely to face some flak about the interior decorating, in light of the tough economic times, the Times said. The White House said the bills were being paid by the non-profit group, the White House Historical Association, through a contribution from the committee that paid for Obama's inauguration.

Obama declined to disclose the cost of the redo but said it was "in line" with what his predecessors spent.

Obama has opted for neutral tones, in contrast to the golds and yellows of the George W. Bush administration, the Times said. The new rug -- which replaces a rug with a sunburst motif designed by former first lady Laura Bush -- features the presidential seal surrounded by the following quotations:

"The Only Thing We Have to Fear Is Fear Itself," by President Franklin D. Roosevelt; "The Arc of the Moral Universe Is Long, But It Bends Towards Justice," by the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.; "Government of the People, By the People, For the People," by President Abraham Lincoln; "No Problem of Human Destiny Is Beyond Human Beings," by President John F. Kennedy; and "The Welfare of Each of Us Is Dependent Fundamentally Upon the Welfare of All of Us," by President Theodore Roosevelt.

LOS ANGELES, Aug. 30 (UPI) -- ABC's "Modern Family" won for best comedy and AMC's "Mad Men" took top drama honors Sunday night at the 62nd annual prime-time Emmy Awards in Los Angeles.

"Modern Family," a series about a dysfunctional family, also won awards for best writing and supporting actor (Eric Stonestreet), the Los Angeles Times said.

Pushed out of the winners circle this year was NBC's "30 Rock."

"Mad Men," set in 1960s Madison Avenue, won for the third year in a row, as did Bryan Cranston, star of AMC's "Breaking Bad," in which he plays a science teacher-turned-crystal meth cook.

HBO reigned in the movies and mini-series category with "Temple Grandin," "You Don't Know Jack" and "The Pacific," the Times said

Kyra Sedgwick won a best-actress Emmy for her role in TNT's "The Closer."

Bravo's "Top Chef" upended CBS's "The Amazing Race" in the reality series category.
