Obama stays on sidelines this time

WASHINGTON (CNN) - There's more basketball on President Barack Obama's agenda Saturday, but this time he's staying on the sidelines.

Obama has arrived at Howard University to watch its basketball team take on Oregon State University, according to pool reports.

He was accompanied by first lady Michelle Obama, daughters Sasha and Malia, and mother-in-law Marian Robinson.

President Obama's brother-in-law, Craig Robinson, is the coach of the Oregon State men's basketball team, the Beavers.

On Friday, President Obama ended up with 12 stitches after taking an elbow to his lip during a basketball game with friends and relatives.

    Glad you put the picture up. Man you would think his lip would be touching his nose if you listened to some of these guys on the board. Speedy recovery. Injuries happen to all who play sports.

    I am republican and black women and i do not hate Obama-I just disagree with his polices. Hate is a word democrats use not all people. Look at the facts not the color poster.

    @RJ, I'm also an AFRICAN AMERICAN who was born in the south. I am 62 years old and I know HATE, RACISM, INEQUALITY, DISRESPECT, BIASNESS, DOUBLE-STANDARDS, DISENFRANCHISEMENT, and then DENIAL of all of it, first hand! Don't you know that those white supremast, greedy republicans and some democrats HATE the notion of a BLACK US PRESIDENT? They hide under the 'white sheet' that they're so upset with his policies, so that it won't show them up as who they really are! NOW, WHICH OF HIS POLICIES DO YOU NOT LIKE?
