Obama: Sometimes I Have ESPN on While I Read Briefings

‘I might have the game on with the sound off’

"SportsCenter when I work out in the morning gives me a pretty good sense of what is going on. I can’t sit down and watch an entire game, except maybe the Super bowl, or the NBA finals, or the world series. Yeah, I might be able to on one day watch the whole game. There are times, I will admit, at night, when I’ve got a really fat briefing book where I might have the game on with the sound off. (Laughter) But I have to say this year the Bears haven’t given me that much reason to want to watch a game. The Bulls -- I’m feeling more optimistic about."
