Subject: In-town pool report #1
Pool is attending the only open event on the president's schedule today.
Because this is an open press event, just some brief notes for those who can't be here. Please check transcript for remarks.
Press was escorted into East Room at noon to the sounds of a 4-piece Marine ensemble playing lively tunes. An audience was already seated.
At 12:31 p.m. Obama took the stage to welcome the champion of the 2014 WNBA Finals, the Phoenix Mercury, to the White House.
Obama praised the record of the team and its service to the community. The president then was presented (jokingly) with an XL jersey before posing for pictures with the team.
Obama tossed a basketball to aide Brian Mosteller, who looked a bit alarmed but caught it.
Event ended at 12:37 p.m.
