One Quote From a Current President That Totally Captures the Crazy Hold Sports Have on Our Minds

Obama at the White House in April 2015.

Jonathan Ernst

President Obama had a good week last week. Was it his best week ever?

Obama didn’t play college basketball, which means that what we have here is someone saying that the week in which he scored an impressive but by no means unprecedented number of points in a high school or recreational basketball game was more memorable than the weeks in which he was elected president of the United States.

And you know what? I could see myself and many of the people I know thinking the same way. Sports are a hell of a drug.
