Obama: UConn Women's Team 'Best in All of Sports'

President Barack Obama spoke with ESPN yesterday about that basketball bracket thing people do in March. Apparently if you go to you can see a video of the president filling out the paperwork. Here's part of what ESPN sent me about it:

Quotes from Interviews with Andy Katz & Doris Burke President Barack Obama is picking Kansas to defeat Kentucky in the 2010 NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship game April 5 and Connecticut to beat Stanford in the NCAA Women’s Basketball Championship April 6 on ESPN at 8:30 p.m. ET. He revealed the picks in an exclusive interview with senior basketball writer Andy Katz and ESPN basketball analyst Doris Burke on Tuesday, March 16.

On the Connecticut Huskies:
President Obama: Well I’ve watched UConn. I saw them, they came here last year after they had won the Championship. Wonderful young women, obviously a great coach and a great program, and so I’ve been watching them throughout the season, and I think it’s fair to say that they’re the best team in all of sports right now.
