Will President Obama go to the TERPATHON? (and what is that? click to find out)

Subject: Pool report #4

With 11:34 to go in the first half and Maryland up 15-14, a group of students took advantage of a timeout to hold high letters with a plea to the first family. The letters spelled out “OBAMAS, WILL YOU COME TO TERPTHON?”

Many thanks to Jamie Coughlin of Bloomberg for finding out that Terpthon is a 12 hour dance marathon benefiting Children’s National Health System on March 8.
A little background on the first lady’s big brother, Craig Robinson. He is 51 and stands 6’6″. He was a two-time all Ivy League forward for Princeton before graduating in 1983. This is his sixth year at Oregon State. He came into the season with a record there of 77-88. Both teams entered tonight’s game at 1-1.

With 3:38 left in the first half, OSU is up 31-30.
