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."

Too bad Bill Murray blows up golf courses or him and 0bama could be REALLY good friends.
Those girls really wanted to do that?? It’s so boring to start with.....and in this case, it’s all about black isn’t it.
She always looks fully aware that the camera is on her.
Imagine the coverage of President Palin frequenting hockey games.
As an OSU alum, it’s sickening to read this tripe.
Heh, heh. So does he.
The loopers in the White Hut's caddy shack are having free Saladin pie for breakfast, lunch, and dinner...
"Oh, uh, there won't be any money,
but when you die, on your deathbed, you will receive total consciousness. (and 64 'virgins' in hell)"
...so at least they still got that going for them - which is nice. [CarlSpacklerVoice -OFF]

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’d like to ‘chat’ w/Obummer!
GD SOB, eatin that f’n hot dog and I am gonna catch $-it all week while I try to ‘sell’ the fools this healthy diet BS.
I see Ubama’s handlers have told him to sprinkle some gray in his hair to effect that “older, wiser, more Presidential” look.
I heard the SOB golfed too. Damn them to hell for having a grand blast jet setting and living it up while people lose jobs and can’t pay they’re mortgages.
He looks very comfortable doing that.
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?
As a basketball fan and player, its sickening to read this tripe.
