President Barack Obama probably has a very sore lip today, after being injured in a pick-up basketball game, with friends and White House aides, at Fort McNair in Washington DC, yesterday. During the game, President Obama got elbowed in the  mouth and had to leave because of a busted lip. A short time later, he reportedly received 12 stitches at the White House.

The Los Angeles Times has a report today on the incident and the player who whacked the president with his elbow.

 Earlier in the week, President Obama had an easier time throwing out high-fives during a food giveaway at Martha’s Table, a community based non-profit in DC. It has become an annual tradition of service for the Obamas who volunteer their time to help others on the day before Thanksgiving.
