The B.S. Report made a special road trip to the White House yesterday to make podcast history: the first-ever podcast with a sitting U.S. President. Take that, Marc Maron!

This was on ESPN’s front page. They have a special sports writing area named after the famous sportswriter Grantland Rice.
Usually I enjoy Simmons although his love of the NBA is a bit much, but he does write with a good sense of humor. I'll skip his Obama butt-kissing though....
