Get off of Obama's leg, SI RT @politico: Sports Illustrated names Obama one of the most powerful people in sports—

The news that launched a thousand eye rolls (yes, we’re low-balling):
Nope, not April Fools’ Day or The Onion. Sports Illustrated actually declared President Mom Jeans the 44th most powerful person in sports. Sports!
Just like many of his undeserved accolades–most notably the Nobel Peace Prize–here is another mind-boggling media honor given to Obama by a mainstream press that genuflects more than they hold Obama to account.
Paging Jon Lovitz: Time for another “you didn’t earn that” graphic.
Sports Illustrated's logic: Obama is one of 50 most influential people in sports because he made March Madness picks. Hell, then so am I!—

Maybe for skeet shooting? Obama totally does that all the time!
