I still like the Tar Heels

...but this is unfortunate...
Play of the Day: Obama shoots hoops with Tar Heels

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. - For all his basketball skills, Barack Obama was out of his league.

The Democratic presidential candidate played hoops with the University of North Carolina team on Tuesday, a Final Four squad that cut the 46-year-old some slack.
...The Illinois senator is a workout enthusiast, and basketball is his chosen game. He decided to open his day with the Tar Heels, including star Tyler Hansbrough, a 6-foot-9 All-American who spent part of his morning guarding Obama.
Is that their punishment for losing the Final Four?

I wonder how much college players really enjoy the public grandstanding that comes with a leading presidential candidate coming to shoot hoops.

I have to say I'd rather play with Barack than with Hillary or McCain. Can you imagine what either alternative would look like?

But if you played with Hillary and you fouled her, she would deny it ever happened--or she would say there were snipers in the stands.

I'd rather shoot hoops with Obama than go hunting with his cousin Dick Cheney.
