President Obama was prompted to drop to the court and do some push ups, after a member of the famous Harlem Globetrotters made a hoop shot at the 134th annual Easter Egg Roll at the White House yesterday. It was part of a “Shoot for Strength” game where kids were encouraged to do push ups every time one of the Globetrotting pros made a basket. The president showed he was game — by doing some of the push ups.

More than 30, 000 people from 50 states reportedly attended the event on the south lawn of the White House. The theme was, “Let’s Go, Let’s Play, Let’s Move,” and the activities included tennis, yoga, a dance party, and cooking demonstrations as well as basketball.
