It's not good to mix politics and sports. One involves people arguing about stupid teams playing stupid games, and the other is sports, and the further the two stay away from each other the better.
However, life sometimes insists on mixing the two. Auburn University's football team won the BCS Championship in January of this year, and finally got their White House visit today, meeting with President Obama at the seat of American Executive power. They signed footballs, gave Obama the obligatory Auburn jersey with "Obama" on the back of it, and also had an assistant coach smash his sternum against the leader of the free world's sternum.
No, really. That happened.
This just happened so we do not have reaction from the major news agencies and blogs yet, but it'll go like this.
New York Times: "Chestbumping: 2011's Way To Say 'Hello' In The Hamptons?"
FOX News: "But We Thought He Was An Environmentalist: Obama Assaults Tiger."
The Huffington Post: "Obama Smashes Coach To Ground: A Slideshow Of Other Times Presidents Have Touched People."
The Economist. "This has nothing to do with anything important. Please go away." <----done with one picture on the page and no byline.
