Undefeated Kentucky basketball received a call from Obama today . To be fair, the main purpose of the call was to praise UK for raising money for Haiti, but then Obama started talking hoops with the team.
One of the starters, Patrick Patterson was touched. "Your leadership has inspired us all," Patterson said.
UK then played at unranked South Carolina tonight.
And lost, 66-62.
Maybe Obama should inspire the Russians in the upcoming Olympics.
