Michelle Obama and the girls hit the Lakers-Celtics game and more

First Lady Michelle Obama hit Game 6 of the NBA Finals on Tuesday, watching from a luxury box with daughters Sasha and Malia as the L.A. Lakers beat the Boston Celtics to tie the series, 3-3.

Mobama detail The family on Sunday flew north to Hollywood from San Diego after stopping by Camp Pendleton so Mom could speak to military families, Top of the Ticket reports; the ladies had dinner that night at Lucques with chef-owner Suzanne Goin and others, according to USA Today.

The first lady also had TMZ running Monday night when she hit Osteria Mozza, leaving shortly after Ryan Seacrest did -- apparently the big guns, security-wise, were happy to let the radio host and "American Idol" icon hit the road on his own while they took care of bigger business.

When the first lady, et al, exited, a California Highway Patrol car, four SUVs and about half a dozen CHP motorcycle cops kept things in line, TMZ said.

On Tuesday before the game, the trio hit classic hot-dog-joint Pink's, L.A. Now reports, where they dined without being hassled and got a round of applause as they departed.

WHO CARES?????????????????????????????????????

And, even Grandma got to go. Gee, this old lady is sure riding on a free pass! She doesn't belong in the White House. We shouldn't have to be paying for her, too! The Obummers are sure milking the US taxpayers, for sure!

@Kassie if it were someone other than the Obama's in the house nothing negative would be said!!! Get over yourself

This is a very sweet story. Glad the ladies chose to spend part of their summer vacation in L.A.

Hey, "Mabel" Cronin----I am quite over myself, and it doesn't matter who is in the White House, it doesn't have anything to do with what you are trying to make out of this, but no granny belongs on the taxpayer's dime, unless they are the president. Which for this past election, might have been a good thing, as Martha would say. Get over, yourself, dude!

Admit it Kassie, you hate this President. Probably always will, and will take any opportunity to bring on the negatives. Maybe once you should try and see the goodness in a mother out with her daughter and granddaughters. Did you get in such a twist when Laura Bush went out with her girls ?? The expense for security goes with the job. Always has, Always will. I agree...get over yourself !!

I'm tired today and really am in no mood to play name-calling referee.

Thanks in advance for behaving nicely.

Hey all. Christie D'Zurilla here from the blog.

I told you I was tired.

Next name-caller gets perma-banned as spam.

(And yeah, I can do that. More than once today, as a matter of fact.)
