It's still a little surreal to see a sitting President be as casual as Barack Obama is in shooting hoops with Clark Kellogg in the above video. But the single strangest -- or coolest -- thing of this weekend in sports was definitely Obama calling "Wap!" to signal his make on the three that Kellogg subsequently missed to lose their game of POTUS.
Obviously, Kellogg intentionally started missing shots late, but Prez Lefty's gangly form and trash talk were impressive. Almost as impressive: The rapier wit that former Sports Illustrated columnist Steve Rushin used to skewer the endeavor:
â‡¥Instead of H-O-R-S-E, Obama plays P-O-T-U-S v. Clark Kellogg. Last man with P-O-T in Rose Garden: Roger ClintonThat's just harsh.
