It took four years, but ESPN's GRANTLAND.COM Editor-in-Chief and columnist BILL SIMMONS finally got to have President BARACK OBAMA as a guest on his podcast "THE B.S. REPORT" this week. SIMMONS originally had OBAMA scheduled to be on the show in APRIL 2008, when OBAMA was still a candidate, but the network pulled the plug at the time, citing the upcoming election.
WEDNESDAY, SIMMONS got to talk to OBAMA at the WHITE HOUSE for about 25 minutes, discussing sports topics from the CHICAGO BULLS (OBAMA hopes to someday welcome them to the WHITE HOUSE as NBA champions), JEREMY LIN ("I’ve been on the JEREMY LIN bandwagon for a while"), and a possible college football playoff system "I’d rather see it eight teams, but four is a good place to start. I think that gets us on the right trend").
