Mr. Obama changed into black sweats and a Chicago White Sox baseball cap and a motorcade whisked him to the fitness center at nearby Fort Lesley J. McNair, site of the National Defense University, to play basketball. His companions included his personal aide, Reggie Love, a former captainof the Duke University basketball team.
After the game, Mr. Love had a bandage on his chin, according to the pool reporter at the scene. And on return to the White House, he "muttered he might need stitches." The players included a group of guys he used to play with at the Y until he departed for what one of them described as "that whole campaign tour," a phrase that came complete with finger quotes. Apparently the Obama side beat their younger opponents in three out of five games of 21, although none of that has been independently verified.
