Just call him the March-Madness-in-Chief!
President Barack Obama has made his picks for the Final Four in the NCAA Tournament — and thinks a no.1 seeded team will win it all.
He’s predicting that Kentucky will win over fellow no.2 seed Missouri to make it to the finals, while UNC will defeat Missouri and challenge Kentucky in New Orleans.
And who does he think will take the title? “I’m a sucker for the Tar Heels!” he told ESPN.
Naturally, the President has a soft spot for his alma mater, but he’s realistic enough to know their chances. “I will be rooting for Harvard,” he said, “but it’s just too much of a stretch.”
Of course, the First Basketball Fan is also a proud dad — and it’s likely that Sasha and Malia will be watching along with him. But he’s not the only celebrity parent who’s got the roundball version of spring fever.
Here are some other famous parents who’ll be cheering on their favorite teams!
