We all know that President Obama is the "Commander-in-Swoosh", but after tonight, will he also be known as the "Commander-in-Puck"? From From John Taylor of the Washington Times via Puck The Meida.
With the Capitals wrapping up their Game 6 rout of the New York Rangers, NBC play-by-play announcer Mike Emrick had a shout-out to President Barack Obama.
He told the listening audience — and I’m paraphrasing here — that President Obama has never been to a hockey game, and that with the Caps now forcing this series to its max and bringing it back home to Verizon Center, well, he’d never miss a Game 7.
For you White House schedulers reading, that’s Tuesday at 7 p.m. at the big arena in Chinatown, about 8 blocks or so from 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.
(*Translation for those that don't speak French and/or forget everything from high school: if the President of the United States decides to watch a hockey game at the Verizon Center.)
