President Obama plans to shoot some hoops tonight after a fundraising dinner co-hosted by Michael Jordan. The White House has barred reporters.
I would assume both Obama AND Jordan want the press kept far away. Obama because he could only look much worse than Jordan, and Jordan because he could only look much worse than himself.
Tickets for the dinner, which will include other present and former NBA players, are $20,000 per person, which is part of the reason why I can’t make it.
I think there are a couple of $3 raffle winners who will also attend and get to shoot some hoops with Obama and Jordan. That’s how the contest was billed.
Actually, Obama is quite good at basketball.
Certainly beats those videos we used to see of Bill Clinton jogging around like a ripe tomato.
Here’s a sport Obama definitely should not be filmed participating in.
