US President goes 2-for-22 from the field and struggles to get his game going.
During the White House Easter festivities last weekend, US President Barack Obama joined players from the Women’s National Basketball Association and a team of young girls in a shoot-out against an all-male team.
Despite his keen interest and passion for the sport, it became agonisingly clear that the President might need a few more hours in practice to get his game right.
“Oh, man. Come on. Come on. Did you see that?” became the all-too familiar line as he continued to see his shots fall off the rim as he went 2-for-22.
The relief was clear when he eventually drained a lay-up to end his barren run, but the damage had already been done.
However, it will undoubtedly have been a memorable time for those enjoying the festivities with him, but unfortunately for the President he may well require a few tips from LeBron James the next time the Miami Heat superstar visits.
