The Washington Mystics Have A New Fan (Hint: He Lives In A Big, White House)

President Obama has been to a few games since taking office. He's been spotted at Nationals Park for a Stephen Strasburg start against the White Sox. He caught his hometown Bulls take on the Wizards back in 2009. He watched his brother-in-law coach when Oregon State came to town to play George Washington and he watched Georgetown take on Duke.
