Barack Obama: Sports Commentator, Duke Mojo Killer

It was supposed to be a good game.
The kids were napping as my husband and I ate lunch, enjoying some Newcastle, watching a decent match up of two top ten teams, Duke and Georgetown. Until…Barack Obama, ubiquity personified, was revealed on the sidelines with his entourage: Joe Biden, David Axelrod, Robert Gibbs, and Reggie Love, amongst others. (Seriously, was the entire executive branch there? Was Rahm manning the replay videos? Giving Coach K half-time pointers on how not to waste a good “crisis?”)
Aside from the cut-away shots to Obama spattered throughout, he donned a head set and sat with the commentators at half time. Why, he’s just like us. Behold:
One live tweet of the game came from GalThursday:
Assuming he was there in support of Reggie Love, a former Duke forward, I think it’s time we acknowledge this special ability Obama has in foiling the chances of whatever he endorses. Call it the reverse-Midas touch. With a track record like Corzine, Coakley, and Deeds, folks should be frantically running for an exit whenever he approaches. “Hey, guys, I’m here to help! Wait up!”
