This popped up in my timeline this morning. It’s a picture taken last week when Jay Wright and other notable but less good looking college coaches visited Washington for a leadership forum at the Pentagon. The trip apparently included a stop at the West Wing for an Oval Office photo with the President.
That would be Jay’s wife, Patti, whom Obama’s right arm is around. And as you might recall, Patti has sort of a crush on Barry. From one of the first posts ever on this site (March, 2010):
“I always thought he had a great basketball mind. I really did,” Wright said about Obama. “I like his game. I saw him play. I hope he’s right. If the president likes your program, that’s a great thing. I’ll take it. I voted for him. If [his wife] Patti gets to meet him, that’s even better. She loves him, more than [she does] me. She said, ‘What does that mean? Do I get to meet him?’ [His son] Reilly wants to meet him to. But Patti’s got a crush on him.”
Tough to compete with the President and his massive Resolute desk.
