A Presidential Night Out
No matter your political affiliation, you can’t deny the fact that President Obama hasn’t at least tried to relate warmly with the people, even it means taking in the play of the bumbling Wizards when he could have been listening to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi bitch about how she looks like a velociraptor.
Thirty games below .500, Washington has seldom given the rest of the league a reason to fear traveling to Verizon Center, but head coach Ed Tapscott and Co. showed up Friday night, much to the chagrin of their esteemed guest of honor, whose hometown Chicago Bulls took it on the chin, 113-90.
While the Wizards were riding a dominating fourth quarter, the Commander-in-Chief was wrapping his evening, which included at least one $8 beer, plenty of photo opportunities, and the periodic high-five from some unidentified chump in the second row—all without the faintest sign of Secret Service manning the area.
