Bill Clinton is no stranger to college basketball.

Going back decades, the 42nd president of the United States has been a loyal Arkansas Razorbacks fan. He grew up in the state, and during his presidency in the 1990s became the first sitting American president to attend a Final Four. (And is still the only one to do so.)

Arkansas held a day of appreciation, nostalgia and tribute on Saturday. The program celebrated its 20-year anniversary of winning the 1994 national title by bringing in a bunch of older, familiar faces back.

To honor Bill Clinton is a gross character flaw. Shame on those who elevate this morally deformed man and his amoral wife.

At least the jersey is protected from stains behind glass.

The only “42” jersey I recognize is Paul Warfield on the ‘72-’73 Miami Dolphins. Klintoon? SPIT!

Csonka, Kiick & Warfield; quite the potent offense.

Though the “42” is meant to represent Clinton’s status as the nations 42nd president, look for him to use it to compare himself to Jackie Robinson.
