President Obama Says He Wants to Be an ESPN Sportscenter Anchor After Leaving Office

“At least I know what I want to do when I retire … host ESPN SportsCenter’s Top 10 list,” Obama told Iger.

 

Here's how it went down, via THR:

If you have any doubt as to how much of a sports junkie Barack Obama is, check in with the entertainment moguls who attended a private briefing with the president Nov. 26 before his speech at Jeffrey Katzenberg’s DreamWorks Animation campus in Glendale (Calif.) …

The (ESPN) highlights countdown can feature everything from major sports to bull fighting to high school basketball. Other than having a good laugh, Iger apparently didn’t respond.

“Everyone had a good giggle,’”says one person who attended.

The private meeting with Iger featured other moguls, including Disney’s Alan Horn, Fox’s Jim Gianopulos, Sony’s Amy Pascal, and CBS’ Leslie Moonves.

Obama vs. Skip Bayless. Who you got?
