Barack Obama to advocate community service during halftime of the NBA All-Star Game

obama-nba-message.JPGIf you need (another?) reason to watch Sunday night's NBA All-Star game, President Barack Obama taped a message that will air during halftime of the annual defense-optional dunkfest.

"The president is encouraging people to visit a Web site _ _ to find jobs that need done near their homes. He says everything from putting together care packages for troops and fixing up basketball courts can help.
The Web site, USA Service, provides opportunities for volunteering and other community service.

I know this would never happen in the real world, but how many people would have tuned in if the Association could have got the basketball-playing Obama to play in the All-Star celebrity game?

I'd imagine he'd get some pretty favorable calls from the officials.
