Notice any Secret Service agents around the area? Well, President Barack Obama was in our neck of the woods on Tuesday, and after he met with a Boston school, he took the time to attend a fundraiser at the Museum of Fine Arts.
There to meet the President were members of the Celtics, including Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, Ray Allen, Doc Rivers, and Glen “Big Baby” Davis, who provided the above picture on his Twitter account.
“Just chilled with my man !!!! Obama,” said Davis, in a Tweet.
Celtics co-owner and former U.S. Democratic senatorial candidate Steve Pagliuca gave a more boring, politically correct statement after the event:
“We were thrilled to visit with the President. He spoke about the Boston Celtics unselfish play and teamwork,” Pagliuca said in the statement. “It was inspiring for us to hear those words and we told the President we hope to see him in the Whitehouse in the fall after the NBA Finals.”
No matter where you stand politically, I’m sure it must have been pretty cool to meet with the President.
