The news yesterday was that Duke basketball coach Mike Krzyzewski was upset that President Barack Obama was taking time away from more pressing matters to give his NCAA brackets to ESPN.
Now, my first response is that, personally, I'm thrilled to have a president who can multi-task and do multiple things at the same time. But seriously, is there anyone out there who doesn't believe that former baseball team owning President Bush wasn't taking time out from mismanaging Iraq to fill out his brackets. And I'm sure the Dubya found a way to put the economy aside so that he could watch the Philadelphia Phillies defeat the Tampa Bay Rays in the World Series.
But what everybody fails to remember is that the beloved Coach K is, politically, to the right of Sarah Palin. So I'm don't really think it's necessary to Krzyzewski's bitching too seriously. Besides, I'm sure if Obama had picked Duke to win the championship instead of North Carolina, then Coach K would have been more than pleased that the President was filling out brackets.
