|Obama on the Mic During Duke-Georgetown Game
|WASHINGTON (AP) -- There was a familiar voice behind the microphone during the Duke-Georgetown basketball game -- Barack Obama's.
The president, attending the game as a fan, provided some hoops commentary early in the second half of Saturday's matchup of two top 10 teams at the Verizon Center near the White House.
Obama told the CBS announcers that his job keeps him too busy to watch a full game on TV during the regular season. He said ESPN's SportsCenter keeps him well updated. But when it comes to March Madness and the NCAA tournament, it's a different story. The president says he'll watch all the Final Four games.
Obama told analyst Clark Kellogg he may become a commentator after leaving the White House -- in three or seven years.
