The Sporting Life

In addition to his own insights on his excellent sports blog, my friend Miles consistently digs up the most entertaining clips around. To wit, here's President Obama shooting hoops with the University of Connecticut women's basketball team that went 39-0 this year. Early on, one of the Lady Huskies charmingly notes, "It's the White House rim!" Then, Obama shows off his silky jump shot a few times and says things like, "Come on, now. Let's see what you got."

Exhibit B is embedded below. It's the famously lunatic Ron Artest discussing his ejection from Game 2 of the Rockets' series against the Lakers. It includes, among other gems, the classically straightforward line, "The point was to really, hopefully, let the refs know I’m pissed."
