Check out this video put out by the White House of Obama talking BBall with Marv Albert. I was so surprised that Albert just tore into him, eviscerating the president with a rapid fire, pointed inquisition that shamed the likes of David Gregory and George Stephanpdlskdfhkhis. Yeah, well, NOT. Okay, sportscasters aren’t supposed to be cross examiners. But Albert added to my dismay by feeding Obama a beautiful pass on the Arizona immigration law which the president took right to the net.
Got to hand it to Gibbs, he knows how to present his man. Two dudes just chatting on the exquisite White House basketball court about sports. I can’t help myself. I enjoyed the video.
A couple of observations:
1. Obama KNOWS basketball. Where does he get the time to watch though?
2. Obama’s hair is turning gray faster than that of any modern president.
3. The president apparently thinks he has the power to set ticket prices. Are the concession stands next? Hope so.
