The Politics of Sports.

Who says that politics and sports don't mix?

In recent years first professional wrestler Jesse "The Body" Ventura was elected the Governor of Minnesota.

He also appeared in a small Hollywood action movie you might have seen with the Governor of California called "Predator". His acting wasn't bad, wasn't great, but wasn't bad. He also appears to have been a pretty good Governor.

Now a professional basketball player has been elected as Mayor. Former Detroit Piston (and Washington Bullet) Dave Bing was elected Mayor of Detroit.
So now the mayor's office will have to have a regulation backboard for the Mayor's One-On-One games with the President.
