White House Considers Instituting Draft, Instant Replay

Washington, D.C.--In the midst of a depressed economy, President Obama has played far more rounds of golf halfway into his second term than his predecessor did in eight years, and Obama has hosted more than 45 sports-related events. Now the White House is considering instituting the draft and instant replay.

"The president plays regulary with sports superstars like LeBron James, Alonzo Mourning, and Magic Johnson," said one administration official. "If the White House team is to remain competitive, it only makes sense to draft the best players."

In just one recent weekend, Obama golfed, played basketball with NBA players, and celebrated with the NFL Champion New Orleans Saints.

"With so much going on," said another official, "we need to consider instant replay so we have the ability to slow down the action when we need to."
