Michelle Obama invited to WPS

The Washington Freedom has invited Michelle Obama and her daughters to a game this season. No word on whether not the female members of the first family will attend, but Freedom players, especially Abby Wambach, is excited by the possibility. They believe it will generate some good press (not they are getting bad press--they just are not getting any national press) and set an example for other fans.

Not sure why they didn't invite the president himself to join his wife and daughter. After all it is the president that believes women can be seen playing sports on television all the time (false) and who apparently was not aware that one could fill out a bracket for the women's NCAA b-ball tourney. Maybe he could learn a thing or two about women's sports from attending a game.
