President Barack Obama continues to make history, even if it has nothing to do with his political campaign, by becoming the first president to attend a WNBA game.

Mr. President attended a game between the hometown Washington Mystics and the Tulsa Shock. All of the WNBA haters out there will be happy to know that the first shot of the game was airballed.

Sasha Obama accompanied her father, sporting an Alana Beard Mystics jersey. We know the president has some basketball skills of his own, maybe his daughter is the future of the WNBA.

Obama has still yet to attend a game of the NHL’s Washington Capitals, the city’s most successful franchise, to the dismay of the D.C. residents. I would be surprised if he doesn’t make an appearance during the upcoming season.
