President Obama DUNKS on Sarah Palin. (And Chris Bosh!)

That is an actual screenshot from the upcoming NBA Jam video game. After watching Chris Bosh in person for the first game of the best team in basketball history last night in downtown Miami, I didn’t think hoops could get any sweeter.

I was wrong.

Soon President Obama will be dunking nasty in Sarah Palin’s face!

Oh man, and I thought Marvel vs. Capcom 3 had my juices flowing. Now this? Yikes. I will leave you with a quote from Trey Smith of EA Sports. Very exciting times.

Sarah Palin is hilarious in the game. She has a beehive haircut and a helicopter dunk that is just awesome. She also makes some pretty funny faces in the photos. It’s just good, clean fun. We even made logos for the Republicans and Democrats, where the donkey is this bad-ass donkey with a Mohawk, and the Republicans have this cool elephant. In the beginning, we were just trying to be true to “Jam,” but on the flip side, it’s really cool to put this in there. Ever since we announced this game, people wanted Bill Clinton to be back. They knew that Obama was a baller, so they wanted him in the game. It’s just this perfect storm for us and we couldn’t be happier to include all of these characters in the game.

Obama Lifts Cuba Travel Restrictions.

(Cuba Collage by fxtx.)

Living in Miami, this is BIG news.

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama directed his administration Monday to allow unlimited travel and money transfers by Cuban Americans to family in Cuba, and to take other steps to ease U.S. restrictions on the island, a senior administration official told The Associated Press.

The formal announcement was being made at the White House Monday afternoon, during presidential spokesman Robert Gibbs’ daily briefing with reporters. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the announcement had not yet been made.

“There are no better ambassadors for freedom than Cuban Americans,” Obama said in a campaign speech last May in Miami, the heart of the U.S. Cuban-American community. “It’s time to let Cuban Americans see their mothers and fathers, their sisters and brothers. It’s time to let Cuban American money make their families less dependent upon the Castro regime.”

I was in the room to hear those quotes. It was a very refreshing, intelligent approach that promised a new day rising for the beautiful island directly to our South. Here’s hoping that I can vacation there soon.

Cuba Libre!
