Obama and family take in basketball game, chat with Bill Murray By Alicia M. Cohn - 11/26/11 05:12 PM ET

President Obama and the First Family continued their post-Thanksgiving tradition by attending the Oregon State versus Towson game in Maryland on Saturday afternoon. Michelle Obama's brother Craig Robinson coaches the Oregon State University Beavers and the Obama family has watched his team play around Thanksgiving for the past three years.

Actor and comedian Bill Murray, who was rooting for the opposite team, chatted with the Obama family before the start of the game.

The Oregon State Beavers won 66-44. The players took a photo with Obama, who also chatted with fellow fans during half-time and enjoyed a court-side hot dog, according to White House press pool reports.

Obama played a little basketball himself on Saturday morning, playing a pick-up game with personal assistant Reggie Love.

He noted Saturday's tentative deal to end the NBA lockout and set a date for the long-delayed basketball season on his way out of the game, giving it a thumbs-up and calling it "a good deal."

I see that Mooch has her usual scowl going on.

And Barry just can’t hide his natural tendencies upon seeing all of those young, sweaty male athletes.

I see Ubama’s handlers have told him to sprinkle some gray in his hair to effect that “older, wiser, more Presidential” look.

They, well particularly Michelle, always seem to be surrounded only by black people. All the photos I see are like that. Is the U.S. population now 64% black? Sure always looks that way.

Nice reporting. Do you think Bill Murray was rooting for the “other team” because his son, Luke, is one of Towson’s assistant coaches?

So did Barry and Bill get a joint of Carl Spackler Bent and a bottle of wine and do the “cannonball” thing?

What I got from this sentence is they never went when it was on their dime.

Three year "tradition" that will stop after he is tossed out on his ass next election.

To me she usually looks like she's either irritated at being where she is or like she has menstrual cramps.

As opposed to her husband, who looks utterly clueless and out of place, like a little boy trying on his daddy's clothes.
