NCAA Tournament: 5 Reasons Why You Should Trust President Obama’s Bracket

From RANTSPORTS.com:

 

March Madness is finally here! In celebration of this glorious time of year, college basketball fans everywhere are filling out brackets in an admirable, but often futile attempt to achieve the perfect bracket and win money and/or bragging rights. The leader of the free world is no exception. President Obama, in all likelihood, will be filling out his annual NCAA bracket sometime this week. Here are five reasons why you can trust his picks.

 

5. President Obama Loves and Respects the Game

 

President Obama clearly has a great admiration for the game of basketball. When he is not speaking to foreign leaders or trying to push bills through Congress, you can find him courtside at college basketball games or giving the Medal of Freedom to NBA legend Bill Russell.

4. Basketball Runs in the Family

 

Oregon State head coach, Craig Robinson, must enjoy his presidential connections. The sixth-year head coach is the brother of First Lady Michelle Obama. Needless to say, the Beavers' commander-in-chief has probably shared some of his basketball wisdom with the real Commander-in-Chief.

3. The President is a Former Player

 

Believe it or not, President Obama was a four-year player on his high school team growing up in Hawaii. Obama worked his way up to highest level, Varsity AA, at the Punahou School by his senior year and was a very solid contributor throughout his four years there.

2. White House Pick-Up Games

 

Obama's basketball experience continued after high school. He has been known to participate in a variety of pick-up games, even after taking his spot in the Oval Office. As you may remember, the President was elbowed in the face during a rather physical game in 2010, causing him to get stiches in his upper lip.

1. Obama Has Picked a Winner in the Past

 

President Obama's past efforts have left a lot to be desired, but Obama did pick North Carolina to win during his first Presidential bracket in 2009, so that should count for something. When it's all said and done, everyone struggles to build the perfect bracket. But if you feel that you need some more analysis, there are definitely worse people that you could consult than the Commander-in-Chief.
