Can you say OUCH?


http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/20...

At one stop, the senator from Illinois was filmed in a Kuwaiti gym shooting a basketball from behind the three-point line. Handing a microphone away, he dribbled a bit, struck a couple of poses for the troops, and warned, "I may not make the first one, but I'll make one eventually." He then let it fly.

Swish.

The competing visual from McCain was the 71-year-old senator riding in a golf cart during his visit to Kennebunkport, Maine, to meet with George H.W. Bush at the former president's retreat.

2. Luck had nothing to do with it

Two days before he left it was reported that he made three seperate trips to the gym.


He knew that the locations were going to be in a gymnasium.


He knew that there would be a basketball.


He knew his sweet spot.


He knew gramps was playing checkers.


Check and Check Mate.
