Former President Obama Disses RI, Doesn’t Pick PC or URI in His Bracket


The state of Rhode Island residents may love former President Barack Obama. They gave him large margins of victory both times he ran for President. 

But that doesn’t mean he thinks much of our basketball teams. The former President, who claims to be a basketball fan, didn’t pick either team to advance past the first round. 

How does that make you feel, Rhode Island college basketball fans?

(The former President is NOT a very creative handicapper. He picks all 1-4 seeds to advance to the Sweet 16. No Cinderella’s at this year’s dance, Prez? Guess again.)
