Photos: Obamas at GWU

President Obama waving at the bandSo, thought you’d go home for Thanksgiving and miss a men’s basketball game, eh? Well, then you missed out on a solid two hours of gawking at the First Family as they walked in, sat in the student section, made goofy faces, and ate popcorn. They managed to only make it onto the Jumbotron twice, entering and leaving, and requested no fanfare music. Alas, where ever the intrepid family goes, a group of reporters and curios fanboys are sure to follow, so behind the cut we’ve brought you exclusive photos from Colonial Brass alum Amanda Notarangelo. The First Family (including First Mother-in-Law) was there, of course, because Michelle Obama’s brother, Craig Robinson, is the Oregon State Basketball coach. Their team apparently got a tour of the White House. And they won the game, 64-57.

The Friday wat. [open thread]

We hope you’ve all had a happy Thanksgiving either here in FoBo or elsewhere.  Today, as you relax and snack on leftovers all day, please enjoy our weekly Friday wat. video and let us know in the comments just how great your turkey day was.


Turkey day delights… [poll]

We hope you’re all gearing up for some delicious and wonderful Thanksgiving day fun.  It’s such a wonderful tradition to get yourself completely stuffed with food, especially when that food is also stuffed with other food, which in turn is also stuffed with food.  I’m speaking of course about the turducken: turkey with a duck inside with a chicken inside.  I’ve never had one, but I’ve always wanted to — so, FoBo friends what do you think?  Does this sound like a Thanksgiving delight? Or would you say that there’s something fundamentally wrong (fowl, perhaps?) with putting animals inside each other and then eating them?
