ESPN’s Bill Simmons had the chance recently to sit down with President Obama and just talk sports for his “B.S. Report.”
As you may know, the president, a former senator from Illinois, is a rabid White Sox, Bulls and Bears fan.
During the course of the interview, Obama made reference to some of his favorite visitors to the White House (sports team category).
Bill Simmons: What’s the most fun sport for the team that came in? Like, what are the funniest group of athletes?
Obama: Well, you know what’s fun is when the women basketball players come in, because they’re all gorgeous and they’re all 6-foot-5 and wearing high heels. And so they’re walking around through the West Wing and everybody is wondering what the heck is going on. And when Maya Moore and the Connecticut Huskies came, we actually went down to my little basket down here and we played a game of HORSE.
BS: You played with them?
Obama: Yes, we played a game of HORSE. Now, Maya is always annoyed that I point out that I beat her. She was wearing high heels and a skirt at the time. [Laughter.] So I’m not sure if that counts.
