Chris Berman had short interviews with both Barack Obama and John McCain during halftime. Berman wisely focused his questions on sports. (Article, sorry, no video yet.)
When asked what changes they would make in sports, Obama called for a college football playoff, which would have cemented my vote for him if I hadn’t already voted. Obama has previously proven himself an astute football fan by doing well at fantasy football.
McCain responded to the same question by talking about eliminating performance enhancing drugs.
A question about lessons learned from sports seemed, to me, weighted towards Obama, a lifelong sports player. He talked about a basketball coach forcing him to think about the team. McCain talked about his English teacher, who was also his football coach.
McCain did get in a good joke about how he want voters to think " he… could… go… all… the… way…" It made me laugh, at least. McCain has good comedic instincts, I’ll give him that.
If GD is better for this thread, I have no problems with a mod moving it.
