President Bush Kinda Sucks At Basketball

At Least His Jumper's Better Than Rondo's

For reasons that I better not get into, I actually attended the same high school as our current President. Some people who went there went on to become President, others of us went on to become bloggers. I know I made the right choice.

And yes, all the stories are true, Bush was indeed a male cheerleader in high school and sucked something fierce at sports and drank like an alcoholic Irishman.

Anyway, yesterday he got the chance to prove that maybe, just maybe, he had some game in front of a group of kids in Belfast. It didn't go so well. He passed the ball like you'd expect a former male cheerleader to pass the ball, and he went 0-4 from the field, including the two hideous bricks you see in the video above you. By the way, that second shot may look like he made it, but no. That thunk you hear is him drilling the backboard. Not included in the video, him getting rejected into the 10th row by a 8-year-old girl.

But hey, it's not all bad. He could still probably start over Rajon Rondo at point guard.

By the way, suddenly ballin' politicians are all the rage. Barack said he'd put a hoop in the White House if elected (which means he just clinched my vote) and he hooped it up with UNC a while back.

At this rate, I fully expect Kevin Garnett to be elected President in 2016.

I agree with 1 opinion. I can't believe that we are discussing this either. As I voted for the man once and felt that more people would realize what a nistake that was. I don't care how he is in BB. His performance and decissions have been soo disappointing.

Did his second shot go in?  He has good form at least.

Of course there has to a be Boston dig. Well Rondo is about to be a part of a world championship team. But then again for you any dig at team thats better than the one you root for is just tired

For the record... I have visited the White House and there is already a basketball hoop which staffers use on a daily basis... so Barack can cross one item off the list of things to do.

How stupid that we even discuss this. Mr Bush, who I am proud to have voted for twice is a little older then obama and basketball isn't his strong point. Big deal, he is running the most powerfull country in the world not worring about his shot. Vote for McCain and who cares if he can shoot a basketball.
