Is Barack Obama Coming To The Wizards-Heat Game? Maybe?

Could Barack Obama take his talents to the Verizon Center and watch the Washington Wizards take on the Miami Heat? We don't know yet, to be clear, and there's a chance it's just some other random famous politician or entertainer. However, here is what we know about tomorrow's Wizards-Heat game:

1. Ted Leonsis wrote on his blog that there will be some VIPs in the building at the game. In fact, these were his exact words.

↵↵We will have a big crowd on Saturday, lots of dignitaries and VIPs. If I was you, I wouldn't be too cool for school and think you will get into the building at your leisure at 7:15 pm. I would get there early. Thank you.

2. The Wizards just sent out an email to season ticket holders telling them to expect "enhanced security" for tomorrow's game (via @Unsilent). Usually, teams get these emails when someone famous is coming, like the POTUS. However, it should be noted that Georgetown season-ticket holders got a similar e-mail for Saturday's game against Loyola too - so maybe it's something else.

If you connect the dots, maybe this means Obama is coming to watch Miami Thrice. Of course, it could just be some other famous guy, like Joe Biden or even a non-politician. But hey, maybe it's Obama, which would be kind of cool.
