Obama: ‘I would not let my son play pro football’

Good to know, via The Hill:

The president made the comments while speaking aboard Air Force One with David Remnick, the magazine’s editor and a former sportswriter for The Washington Post.

Obama said that while the risks were understood, if he had a son, he would not allow him to play professional football.

“I would not let my son play pro football,” he said. “But, I mean, you wrote a lot about boxing, right? We’re sort of in the same realm.”

I’m sure all marginal pro football players are breathing a sigh of relief.  After all, if Obama’s imaginary son played football as well as Obama throws a baseball, there’d be one NFL player who’d surely lose his spot on the roster, no?

Exit question: What about Michelle?
