Barack’s Left Cover Drive (it’s Cricket, people)

Is Obama going to be the new Oprah — when it comes to book sales? In a recent interview, Obama mentioned that he’s reading the book Netherland by Joseph O’Neill. The book, which is already showing a double digit increase in sales,  is about a dutch financial analyst who rediscovers his love of cricket post 9/11.

Of course, the PREZ was being modest when he stated that he knew nothing about cricket. During the Fifth Summit of the America’s, the PREZ  got first class batting lessons from cricket superstar Brian Lara.  According to reports, the PREZ is the first US President to attempt a left handed cover drive. As gracious as ever, when meeting Brian Lara, Obama stated, “I’ve always wanted to meet the Michael Jordan of Cricket!” If I were Brian Lara, I would have swooned and gone into cardiac arrest.
