Obama and family take in some college basketball

(CNN) - Washington, D.C.'s biggest Oregon State hoops fans - President Barack Obama and his family - headed to the University of Maryland Sunday evening to take in the Beavers' upset win over the hometown Terps.

Entering the College Park arena to cheers, the President, his wife and two daughters enjoyed the game from behind Oregon State's bench. The team is coached by Michelle Obama's brother Craig, and the siblings' mother Marian Robinson also tagged along.

The Obamas have caught up with the Beavers during past capital region swings, including games at Towson University in Maryland and George Washington University in the District.

    Cheers? I'm sure there had to be a good amount of booing, too. These distractions are not going to work, Obamacare will follow you everywhere.

    here is a president that is fighting like hell for the average Joe. he's been ridiculed by the repubs with their superior propaganda machine at every turn, and yet he fights on to make every Americans gets the opportunity to have healthcare. Americans its time you stop lessening to the repubs and get behind this president for once in this fight, yes i know a lot of you will be inconvenience and may have to go down to the nearest hospital to sign up for the exchanges in obamacare because your sub par junk insurance plan has been cancelled, and yes a few of you that can afford it might have to pay a little bit more money so your country man can get some help, but we all are patriots, and patriots always look out for the less fortunate.

    Glad to see the First Family taking some much needed time off to have a little fun.
    To the haters, I am sure y'all sit at home lonely and desperate.
