I was Tongue-TiedPosted on April 14, 2009
So I met the President today after his speech at Georgetown University. He spoke about our economy and about his plans for a new mission and recovery and turnaround. He was eloquent, charismatic and on top of his game. He spoke about education, health care, green tech and Wall Street and Main Street. The speech was really meaty as well as inspirational. He was introduced to me and my wife. We shook hands and all I could say was, "Mr. President - we would love to host you at a playoff game this week. The Caps play on Wednesday and Saturday at Verizon Center." He laughed, touched me on the arm and said, "I have heard great things about your team and I bet it will be a lot of fun. We will get back to you." He then walked away. When he was on the stage before he spoke, he saw Steve Case in the crowd and gave him the Hawaiian "hang loose" sign as they went to the same high school in Honolulu. I can't believe that that was the only thing that I could muster meeting the President of the United States.
