The president sent a public message of personal congratulations Saturday night after a win by the Dayton Flyers.
He tweeted from the White House official account, but signed off as “bo,” which indicates Obama had a personal hand in it.
Not surprisingly, some American citizens were wondering just when leader of the free world would start concentrating on something a little more serious. Suggestions were plentiful. Mostly via Twitchy:
Congrats to the @DaytonFlyers on a huge upset win! Devin Oliver, I may need to take you up on that pick-up game one of these days. -bo

There were a few snarky tweets added to the mix and a reminder of 9-11-2012:
