People get injured playing basketball, as well as most other sports, every day, and yet it could never really be classed as news. That is, however, unless it’s the U.S. President on the receiving end.
President Obama loves playing basketball, or at least he used to. Maybe he won’t so much any more, not because he’s now the leader of the United States, but because he recently took an elbow to the face.
Obama was playing some five on five at Fort McNair, Washington, when Rey Decerega, Program Director for the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute accidentally struck him in the face.
The President was escorted to hospital by his security staff and given 12 stitches, mostly on his lips. Not an exciting story, granted, but kinda interesting. And I’d hate to be Decerega right now, accident or otherwise.
