He’s no Keith Olbermann.

If you have any doubt as to how much of a sports junkie Barack Obama is, check in with the entertainment moguls who attended a private briefing with the president Nov. 26 before his speech at Jeffrey Katzenberg’s DreamWorks Animation campus in Glendale.

At the end of the conversation — which touched on a myriad of topics, from piracy to Iran — Obama revealed what’s at the top of his bucket list post-White House: “At least I know what I want to do when I retire … host ESPN SportsCenter’s Top 10 list,” Obama quipped as he turned to Disney’s Robert Iger, whose empire includes ESPN.

The highlights countdown can feature everything from major sports to bull fighting to high school basketball. Other than having a good laugh, Iger apparently didn’t respond.

“Everyone had a good giggle,” says one person who attended.

A couple of years ago I might have giggled too. Now that we are living in a never ending headline from The Onion, and given the fact that the Hollywood types are among the few who are still fawning over The Idiot King, I worry that things like this may come true.

I'm not so sure it can work.

Don't sports announcers need to be right about some things occasionally?

No way will the Sun King go on air. His delivery is so stilted, people will change channels as soon as he starts talking. As much as Disney/ABC/ESPN may love Barry, they love ratings more.
And honestly, Barry is going to be so busy catching up on his golf that he'll never have time to head to the studio.

I want him to go into the Witless Protection plan when he leaves office.

There is Fox Sports 1, NBC sports and CBS sports. Doesn't ESPN know about his anti-Midas touch?
