Just one year into his second term, President Barack Obama let slip that he already knows what he wants to do once he retires, and believe it or not, it involves ESPN’s “SportsCenter.”

According to The Hollywood Reporter, at a private briefing with entertainment moguls held last week in Glendale, Calif., Obama turned to Disney’s Robert Iger and quipped: “At least I know what I want to do when I retire … host ESPN SportsCenter’s Top 10 list.”

The Top 10 highlights countdown features the best plays of the day in a wide range of sports events and competitions.

Other than having a good laugh, the The Hollywood Reporter said Iger offered no response — Disney owns ESPN.

Obama was in California for a couple of fundraisers held before Thanksgiving, one at the home of Magic Johnson and the other at the home of Haim Saban.

With the president’s signature healthcare law falling apart before his eyes, one would think he’d have more pressing issues on his mind. Or is the weight of the impending disaster causing Obama to look forward to the end of his final term?

Either way, that’s one occurrence sure to make a lot of Top 10 highlight lists.
