"My dad goes to the movies when he needs a break; [Obama] plays basketball."

-- Jon Larranaga, former George Mason basketball player and son of coach Jim Larranaga, on what it was like to spend two hours playing basketball with the president this weekend. He and his brother Jay (a former European-league pro) were recruited to play a couple of games with POTUS at Fort McNair, Jon told our colleague Dan Steinberg: "I really felt like he was just trying to get a workout in, a little break from the stresses of his job."
