Sept. 21, 2010

An avid basketball fan, President Barack Obama today took time from his hectic schedule to place a congratulatory phone call to the 2010 WNBA champion Seattle Storm. On the call with President Obama were Dawn Trudeau and Lisa Brummel from Force 10 Hoops LLC, the Storm's ownership group, CEO and President Karen Bryant and Storm center Ashley Robinson.

Obama congratulated the Storm on "winning with style" and managed to score points with both the Storm and some female athletes much closer to home, telling the Storm players that they are great inspirations and to enjoy the celebration.
