Miami Heat role player Shane Battier has only one superstition following games: to drink a Bud Light. So Anheuser Busch decided to stock up his fridge with plenty of his favorite beer. After all, it’s only weird if it doesn’t work. I wish they would have given the Birdman a truck a beer and a few J’s…now that would have been a good time.-TO

Rockets forward Shane Battier is text buddies with President Barack Obama. Sort of. According to a Houston television station, Obama sent Battier a text message, through one of his aides, after the Rockets beat the Lakers in Game 4. Of course, the aide was Battier’s former teammate at Duke, Reggie Love. “Through Reggie, he sent me a message that said good job leading the guys in the face of adversity,” Battier told FOX 26 Sports. “It was pretty cool. Not your garden variety text message. “It’s great that we have a sports fanatic in the White House who appreciates competition. For the leader of the free world to acknowledge your leadership, it’s pretty cool.” No word if Obama sent condolences after the Lakers drubbed the Rockets by 40 on Tuesday.
Its good to see Obama is worrying about the real issues…like if the Rockets can upset the Lakers. -TO
