    The President didn't spend all day working on his strategy for Afghanistan or the upcoming midterms. A good chunk of the day, he devoted to hoops.

    With his daughter Sasha and one of her friends in tow, President Barack Obama attended this evening's Washington Mystics matchup against the Tulsa Shock. There, he sat courtside with Verizon Center owner Ted Leonsis.

    Mayoral candidate and D.C. Councilman Vincent Gray also made an appearance at the game.

    Earlier today, President Obama played a game of basketball with an Army team at Fort McNair in Maryland, according to the Associated Press.
