Basketball-fan-in-chief Barack Obama is thinking about hitting the hardwood with the man who sidelined his healthcare reform overhaul, newly-seated Sen. Scott Brown (R-Mass.)
Press reported Wednesday that Brown's office floated the idea of
holding a charity game in Springfield, Mass., which is considered the
birthplace of basketball. A White House spokesman told the AP that they
are considering the possibility.
Also on Wednesday, Springfield
Mayor Dominic Sarno wrote to the White House, saying that a presidential game could benefit local charities.
Brown has said he would play a two-on-two game, with his daughter Ayla, who plays for Boston College, as his teammate. No word on who might back up the president, who's two daughters are still in grade school.
