My kind of coach

I can't believe this quote slipped by me.

This is Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski on President Barack Obama's NCAA tournament bracket:

"Somebody said that we're not in President Obama's Final Four, and as much as I respect what he's doing, really, the economy is something that he should focus on, probably more than the brackets," Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski said from the Blue Devils' first-round site in Greensboro, N.C.


Conservative sports fans across the nation agree: My sentiments exactly, coach.

Sorry Adam, I'm not with you on this one. Because he spent 5 minutes filling out a bracket does not mean he's neglected the nation for the past 2 weeks as he's tracked the progress of his bracket.

Remember, Bush took daily NAPS while in office.

I agree Adam. My wife and I both had a good laugh on this one when it came out a week or so ago. Was Coach K serious, I couldn't tell from the tone of his voice.

This is just another brilliant political move by Obama. By filling out a bracket on ESPN he just reinforces the idea that he relates to Americans. I wish the Republican brass would take notes. I guess they could just have another gathering with a bunch of old stiffs and some has been country music star and take thier chances in 2010 and 2012. Why not? It worked so well last time around.

I am against you and Coach K on this one. I think you're looking too much into nothing. Filling out a NCAA bracket doesn't equal neglecting duty.
