How Obama Follows Sports

In a great interview, Bill Simmons asked President Obama how he has time to follow sports "when you have the busiest job on the planet?"

Said Obama: "Well, first of all, I don't watch network news or cable news. So in the morning, when I'm working out with Michelle, it's on SportsCenter. This is the one thing that she allows me to control is SportsCenter. So that pretty much keeps up the family on whatever has happened the night before. And I tend to be a night guy. Michelle and the girls will go to bed around 9:30 p.m. or so. And so I usually have to stay up until midnight or 1 a.m. reading stuff. And every once in a while I'll sneak in a ball game as I'm reading my briefings."
