“I am wearing a green tie today because we’ve got the Irish prime minister visiting. But that neon glow thing wasn’t working for me,” Obama said when making his bracket picks. (He took Notre Dame in the first round, but no farther.)
You cross the Fighting Irish at your peril. "I see @BarackObama weighed in on uniforms," Notre Dame head coach Mike Brey wrote on Twitter. "Sending him one for his next pickup game. Guarantee he'll dribble better right-handed. Go Irish!"
Notre Dame is one of the final teams to make its tournament debut, tipping off Friday evening at 9:45 ET against Iowa State. Perhaps the president will be able to catch a few minutes of the game. After all, he'd be able to see them from the windows of Air Force One.
