Even President plays fantasy sport. The video below is taken from Conan where Conan O’Brien interviews sports writer Rick Reilly about how he played fantasy football (American) with the President of the United States (POTUS in short).

I had the privilege to meet President Obama this year because our company is supported by his State Department. Yes, it’s true. We’re supported by the U.S State Department via the GIST Initiative program run by CRDF Global.

It’s common knowledge in U.S sports fratenity that Obama supports Chicago Bears. The lingering question of whether he plays fantasy soccer is still unanswered.

The GIST Initiative is a partnership led by the U.S. Department of State and CRDF Global.  – See more at: http://gist.crdfglobal.org/about-gist#sthash.gr3EkkLV.dpuf
