Obama Picks Carolina

Like many of us, Barack Obama filled out a bracket earlier this week. Amazingly, despite all that he has to do, he knows more about the tournament than I do. Sadly, he did not go with his top personal aide and picked a lighter and crappier shade of blue to win it all.

And K is not pleased!

WASHINGTON (CNN) – Duke basketball coach Mike Krzyzewski isn't thrilled his team got snubbed by the leader of the free world.

"Somebody said that we're not in President Obama's Final Four, and as much as I respect what he's doing, really, the economy is something that he should focus on, probably more than the brackets," Krzyzewski told a reporter from the Associated Press on Wednesday.

As much as I love Coach K, come on man. If you're that worried about the economy take the Undude's salary for a season and give distribute the rest to others. I like the fact that Obama continues his passion while in office. Heck he needs a little fun with all the junk he has to do/clean up.

Would he have had the same reaction if Obama had picked them in the Final Four?

K can bite me when it comes to politics

Particularly given the fact Reggie Love was standing next to Obama when he filled out the bracket. K's liberal counterpart, the Dean, probably liked it.

Not to defend K's politics or anything, but in the original story, it was made clear that he was joking when he said that.

I sit corrected. That's the good former Chronicle journalism we all know and love!
