We fully acknowledge here at Sports Pros(e) that our WNBA coverage to date has been, shall we say, nonexistent. But today’s blog post from Los Angeles Sparks center Lisa Leslie caught our attention.
Leslie visited the White House a while back and recounts her meeting with President Obama and first lady Michelle.
Here’s how she describes the scene as Obama entered:
And there he was… OMG, I’m going to faint… He is really tall, handsome and cool; just like he looks on TV. And a little pigeon toed I might add. As he made his way to the podium, he looked at me and WAVED!!! (ok, well he couldn’t miss me standing 6’5 plus heels… Don’t hate, he waved at ME!)
But it was Leslie’s next sentence (and accompanying emoticon) that immediately jumped out at us:
No word on whether Jesus juice was served at the event.
