The Obamas in Towson, Maryland

Last night, the Obama family watched the First Lady’s brother coach basketball for the Oregon State basketball team at Towson University:

For some fans at the Towson Center Arena on Saturday, the fact that there was a basketball game going on may not have been the first thing on their minds.

What the fans got in Towson University’s men’s basketball home opener against Oregon Stateincluded many big names, including President Barack Obama and family, actor Bill Murray, Congressman Dutch Ruppersberger, former Congressman Tom McMillen and San Antonio Spurs star (and former Tiger) Gary Neal.

The dignitaries were among a crowd of 3,119 who watched the Tigers (0-5) fall to the Oregon State Beavers (5-1), 66-46.

The Obamas were on hand to cheer on the Beavers and coach Craig Robinson, First Lady Michelle Obama’s brother. The president and first lady sat courtside, while daughters Sasha and Malia sat nearby.

Murray was there to watch the home debut of his son, Luke, a Towson assistant coach. He occasionally posed for photos with fans in the stands.

Sadly, my home team lost.

Moving on – I’ve been obsessing over that heart sweater – like the rest of the internet – and so I’m not sure why I’m surprised that the ever-fashionable Mrs. Obama is rocking it out during date night. She looks lovely in it. And the converse are a nice touch, too.

Oh, and the ever-chill Bill Murray was there, too. Evidently, his son is a Towson Assistant Coach, and this was his debut home game.

Man how I wish I was there.
