Obamas' Choice Boosts This Rivalry
Forget Redskins-Cowboys and Army-Navy: The hot new rivalry is Sidwell Friends-Maret. The exclusive private schools faced off last month in the quest to win Malia and Sasha Obama, with underdog Maret losing out to Chelsea Clinton's powerhouse alma mater -- and now it's part of a battle cry: The schools' basketball teams met last Saturday, and in the nail-biting fourth quarter, Sidwell students took up the chant "O-ba-ma!" (Or "We got Obama!" according to another account.) Sidwell beat Maret, 47-46. The boys' varsity teams meet again tomorrow, at Maret.
