Aiming High: Obama Wants to Host ‘SportsCenter’ When He Retires

Well, that’s one job he’s actually qualified for since you just read off a TelePrompter. Here’s a deal: Retire now and we’ll see what we can work out.

On the downside we suspect ESPN would like to retain their audience.

At the end of the conversation — which touched on a myriad of topics, from piracy to Iran — Obama revealed what’s at the top of his bucket list post-White House: “At least I know what I want to do when I retire … host ESPN SportsCenter‘s Top 10 list,” Obama quipped as he turned to Disney’s Robert Iger, whose empire includes ESPN.

The highlights countdown can feature everything from major sports to bull fighting to high school basketball. Other than having a good laugh, Iger apparently didn’t respond.

“Everyone had a good giggle,” says one person who attended.

They weren’t laughing with him, but at him.
