We'll preface the following with an observation of those painful interviews executed by network sports play-by-play announcers in the broadcast booth of the stars of shows that said network is attempting to promote.

We can't find the YouTube clip but we recall an interview of actor Christian Slater on Monday Night Football a few years back that made us want to gouge out our eyeballs.

Parlor discussion with our boy, Max: which celebrity/public figure exhibits the best and most in-depth knowledge of sports?

We forgot his first response but it was followed up very quickly with, "The President". We couldn't agree more. Dude does know him some sports. ESPN falls all over themselves each March when he makes his bracket picks and where he has some solid takes on the tournament.

Unfortunately, it would appear that time taken to bone-up on one's football picks has taken its toll on the nation's economic fortunes if one is to believe there are only so many hours in the day.

It's as if Harvard offered-up Bracketology 101 instead of Econ 101. No, it's no longer "as if". We're pretty much convinced of it.

And speaking of celebrity interviews:

You might have a typo. You wrote "8 weeks since he took answers from the White House press corps."

He takes answers from them every day. He hasn't taken questions from them in 8 weeks.
