Our President has got some serious basketball chops
Great filmclip hosting the UCONN Huskies

UPDATE: Maya Moore, this years winner of the John R. Wooden Award as the women's college basketball player of the year, dropped us a note after her visit:

Wow what an experience! I am still in shock that my teammates and I were able to be in the same atmosphere as some of the greatest leaders in history. As we were taking a tour of the rooms of the White House, like the famous Red Room, I felt a deeper appreciation for the founders of this nation. We truly do live in an amazing country and actually walking where some of our great leaders have walked gave me chills! Meeting President Obama was as enjoyable as advertised, and he left an inspiring impression on us all. The way he took the time to shake hands, take pictures, and talk to everyone showed his humility and genuine personality. The way he sacrificed some extra time out of his day to shoot a few shots with us made me remember what life is all about. It is about investing in people and having faith that the love you impart on them will somehow make the world better than it was. Thank you to President Obama and everyone who made this event possible!

2. He's silky smooth and his shots hit 'nuthin but net.
After eight years of a feces flinging, brain dead monkey with fetal alcohol syndrome and ADD, let me say this...

OUR GUY FREAKING RULES.

8. Thank you, everyone, for paying attention to this thread. Often, the more
positive threads sink out of sight the fastest.

11. Hey, I'll kick this!
It's really gratifying to see the quote up there - people so seldom have any sense of appreciation.
