. . .Truth be told, BAM has already earned eternal Bro-of-the-Day status for being the most fantastic U.S. President of this generation, and today specifically, Barack Obama is proving that by attending the Army-Navy college gridiron classic.
It was not too long ago (Oct. 21) that Obama announced the US troops in Iraq would be home for the holidays.
After the troops have left, the U.S. presence in Iraq - which peaked at 170,000 - will be reduced to a small number of federal employees and private contractors employed by the State Department, according to FOXNews.
This Army-Navy PR comes at a crucial time for both college football, which will announce its Heisman trophy winner tonight on ESPN at 8 p.m., and for President Obama, who has a big speech coming up in Kansas about the economy.
Quoted from AP via ESPN:
President Barack Obama will attend the 112th edition of the annual Army-Navy football game on Saturday afternoon. The commander in chief will be joined by Vice President Joe Biden and Biden's wife, Jill, at FedEx Field, the home of the Washington Redskins.
The Naval Academy Midshipmen lead West Point's Black Knights in the overall series with a 55-49-7 record, including nine wins in a row. Last year, Navy beat Army 31-17.
Thanks to Barack Obama, we're going to see more service men playing football in their back yards in 2012 than in 2011, and for that, B of the D shall stand.
Perhaps Obama will reference his promise to pursue a bracketed playoff system in stead of the BCS during his economic briefing in Kansas?
Either way, Bro of the Day.
