Finally...the president's NCAA bracket has been revealed! Mr. Obama has North Carolina, Kentucky, Ohio State and Missouri in the Final Four.
As part of the kick off to March Madness, the president and British Prime Minister David Cameron attended a first round game in Dayton on Tuesday night. On Wednesday morning, they were still talking hoops at the official welcoming ceremony for the prime minister at the White House.
"The storied relationship between the United States and the United Kingdom is steeped in tradition and last night as president I shared with the Prime Minister a uniquely American tradition of bracketology. March Madness," said Mr. Obama. "He has learned to appreciate one of our great national pastimes. His team has told me he has decided to install a hoop at Ten Downing Street."
The prime minister responded with thanks "for the lesson last night." He added, "I will leave America with some new words: ally oops, brackets, fast breaks. And who knows? Maybe that hoop will be installed in Downing Street after all."
