    Congrats to Tom Jolly. In Sunday sports pages Tom Jolly tells us that Obama supposedly at a bar to watch Davidson / Wisconsin paid little attention to the game.

    As long as he wasn't having a conversation with Reverend Wright at the time, I have no problem with it...

    Had the KU game been on while he was there, I'm sure he would have been glued to the TV.

    Presumably, Obama will pay more attention during this:

    http://www.courierpress.com/news/2008/mar/28/obama-hold-3--3-challenge-change/

    "Calbert Cheaney, former Indiana high school basketball star, 1993 NCAA player of the year and Evansville native, announced today that high school students across the state will be eligible to play 3-on-3 basketball with presidential candidate Sen. Barack Obama, D-Il., if they can register at least 20 other new voters by April 6. The state has set April 7 as the deadline to register to vote in Indiana's May 6 primaries.

    "The student who wins the Obama's campaign's "3-on-3 Challenge for Change" may pick two of his or her friends to join in playing basketball in Indiana with Obama before May 6."

    Now THAT's a politician who knows what moves voters.

    Young Obama's been chucking the three effectively for Davidson.

  9. The best move was how he spun the thing to talk about how hot the gym was and how the kids deserved better.
    Now THAT was slick.
