Sports and Elections

This election more than any other i have witnessed has used sports especially in the campaign of Barack Obama. As i write this CNN is talking of how Obama is playing basketball as is his normal ritual on election day. During this election Obama has played with the University of North Carolina mens basketball team and ESPN anchor Stuart Scott. Obama considers this a lucky ritual and the games have become more popular. In Obamas hometown of Chicago the talk is of the election first and the basketball game second. Running for president while running the court is apparently all in a days work for Obama.
