After a round of golf, President Obama stopped by the Verizon Center for Saturday's East Regional Final between the Syracuse Orange and the Marquette Golden Eagles. He also chilled with his former body man Reggie Love, brother-in-law Craig Robinson and NCAA President Mark Emmert. If Obama previously planned to watch the East Regional Final, he probably imagined Indiana, whom he picked to win the title on his ESPN bracket, would be there instead of Syracuse. However, it's not surprising he'd stop by. The Verizon Center is a stone's throw from the White House and Obama is always looking for ballas to scrimmage.
Obama is thanking Mark Emmert for bringing the East Regional Final to DC. This is better than any Wizards game he's attended in 4 yrs.— The Shadow League (@ShadowLeagueTSL) March 30, 2013
