In a recent trip to Los Angeles, during a meeting with entertainment moguls including Disney CEO Robert Igner, President Barack Obama spoke about a wide range of topics, including his desire to host SportsCenter’s Top Ten list.
At the end of the conversation — which touched on a myriad of topics, from piracy to Iran — Obama revealed what’s at the top of his bucket list post-White House: “At least I know what I want to do when I retire … host ESPN SportsCenter’s Top 10 list,” Obama quipped as he turned to Disney’s Robert Iger, whose empire includes ESPN.
It’s no secret that President Obama is a huge sports lover, so this bucket list item doesn’t surprise me at all. I think it would be great to see a former Commander in Chief host the show.
Also during his trip, Obama attended a fundraising event at the home of Lakers’ great Magic Johnson.
