Did my morning ritual of reading my blogs, then checking ESPN. It was there that I saw that Barack Obama had done a podcast with ESPN columnist Bill Simmons! Knowing Simmons' style, at first I thought it was a joke, but it was legit and a very entertaining interview! Link after the break
Link to podcast and excerpts from the podcast:
In the interview the president discusses his take on various sports topics. Hearing something like this makes it hard for me to take seriously people who call Obama an elitist. A frank discussion on the topic of sports!? Could you imagine Mitt Romney doing an interview like this? Ron Paul? Newt? MAAAYBE Rick Santorum, but I'm probably giving him too much credit.
Obama has way more in common with the "everyday" man than any of those clowns. Enjoy!
