The things a man must do to become president: Dec. 17, 7:43 a.m.: Barack Obama arrives at a Spencer, Iowa, YMCA for a one-on-one basketball game against SI senior writer S.L. Price. Obama notes the red-white and blue ball's resemblance to his campaign logo, the only time he makes mention of the looming Iowa caucuses.
President Barack Obama called Jason Collins on Monday to express gratitude for the NBA player's decision to publicly announce that he was gay, two sources familiar with the call told The Huffington Post.
Today at the White House’s annual Easter Egg Roll, President Obama was joined by a gaggle of kids and some of the Washington Wizards, including point guard John Wall. According to bystanders, the President’s basketball skills did not impress.
