The President on Women's Sports

From an AP article by Andrew Miga, the Seattle Times quotes President Obama...

Obama said that as the father of two young daughters, he especially appreciates the success of female athletes like the Connecticut team.

"My girls look at the TV when I'm watching 'SportsCenter' and they see women staring back," Obama said of the ESPN program, a personal favorite. "That shows them that they can be champions, too."

According to the article, the president played a game of P-I-G with the UCONN Huskies after recognizing them as 2009 NCAA champions.

My question: if UConn didn't win the game of P-I-G, would Obama have refused to recognize them as nat'l champions?

UCONN lost the game of P-I-G.

"The president, a former high school player and avid fan who still plays pickup games, PREVAILED in a brief, impromptu game of P-I-G with a few of the players."

He is known to have a decent jumper.
