President Barack Obama will speak with John Calipari and the University of Kentucky basketball team today to show his thanks for their recent fundraising efforts. UK raised $525,000 in funds in its “Hoops for Haiti” telethon in order to help the earthquake relief efforts in Haiti. With $500,000 in matching funds, UK raised more than $1 million.
The conversation is scheduled for today at 1:30, and media will be present for the call. So, if I’m a reporter in that room, there’s only one question on my mind: Mr. President, given your background and sensible nature, why the fuck do you always wear pants when you’re hooping? The people have a right to know.
