President Obama beats Steph Curry
Have you seen it? Steph Curry actually loses to President Obama in Connect Four. It is the cutest but uber smart video by My Brother's Keeper, a mentorship program for young men. Barack also shows Steph how to professionally do a resume, reads to him from Audacity of Hope but he ends with helping him clean up his shot. You can watch the video (and be sure to share it) below. Last week the President met with other African American celebrities and notable figures to highlight the MBK program. Way to go Prez!

There is way too much advertisement everywhere else: The floor, the mop that cleans the floor, arenas inside and out - GEESH enough already. Can't await to previews these jerseys and really is that going to impact you purchasing an item because a player has it on his jersey? I dunno but hear the NFL might be next.
