Nancy Armour of The Associated Press has written a story about President-Elect Barack Obama, and includes this great lead:
CHICAGO (AP) — The Rangers are out, the White Sox are in, and the mountain bikes are headed for the basement. As for that White House bowling alley — well, that hardwood might be in for a complete makeover.
With that in mind, I found video of when Obama visited Chapel Hill and played a pick-up game with the Tar Heels. And with the Heels ranked No. 1 and blowing out opponents by an average of 30.4 points per game, I wonder whether they’d really miss a step if he were on the floor with them.
Personally, I like the idea of a guy with a feathery left-handed jumper in the White House over the typical stretch of ugly presidential golf swings or way-too-short shorts while jogging.
And do you think, after he does get around to putting a hoop up in the White House, that Obama will play games of N-U-C-U-L-E-A-R with cabinet members?
I hope so.
