Photo: Michelle Obama strikes the Heisman pose

President Barack Obama is known as a big basketball fan, but perhaps his wife's sport of choice is football.

During an event in Dallas to help promote the First Lady's "Let's Move!" initiative, Michelle Obama struck the Heisman pose for cameras while holding a football and talking with a few Dallas Cowboys who were helping with the event.

OK, her form isn't awesome — five points of pressure, Michelle — but you can only do so much in a skirt and heels. With those limitations, I think it's a fine Heisman rendition. And certainly no worse than her husband's attempt, which was done at the University of Texas before he was president.
