The Obama family has been in L’Aguila, Italy for the G8 Summit. As is usual, POTUS continues to receive awesome gifts from various international leaders. Brazil’s President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva (aka Lula) presented Obama with an authentic soccer jersey, numbered 5.
Lula took this an an added opportunity to needle Obama about America’s recent 3-2 loss to Brazil, after an awesome 2-0 lead. Obama retorted, “next time we won’t give up a 2-to-nothing lead.” White House Press Secretary Gibbs said that he “could sense some relief on the Brazilian president’s part that he wasn’t meeting with the President of the United States having lost to him in soccer.”
