Barack Obama makes a court appearance

August 28, 2008 |  8:58 am

DENVER -- As is his wont, Barack Obama blew off some steam today before his long-awaited speech tonight before a multitude of adoring Democrats by engaging in his favorite athletic endeavor -- a game of b-ball.

The now-official Democratic presidential nominee arrived at the Denver Athletic Club about 8:15 a.m. MDT with a couple of friends -- Reggie Love and Dr. Eric Whitaker.

According to pool reporter Matthew Mosk of the Washington Post, their game lasted about an hour. No word on whether he was on target with his shots or not.
