The NCAA reported today that President of the United States, Barak Obama, has been awarded the Heisman Trophy. While the award is usually bestowed upon college football's most talented offensive player, the NCAA this year took a different approach.
"He's a heck of a basketball player and we saw him throwing a ball really well to his dog Sasha earlier this year in the Rose Garden" stated Aaron Duckandcover, Awards Director for the NCAA.
Responding to critics of this years surprise choice, Duckandcover went on: "It has nothing to do with actual on-the-ground accomplishments. This award is intended to give hope to all the athletes and non-athletes of the world; hope that even in the absence of real performance, they too can be given awards for their good intentions, future promise and current popularity."
President Obama was unavailable for comment as he was back in the Rose Garden having a smoke.
