LONDON - America's First Lady, Michelle Obama could very well be the most popular American in London, no matter what Bob Costas or Matt Lauer may think.
On Sunday merry Michelle hugged every single member of the United States men's basketball team.
LeBron James of the world champion Miami Heat told Sports Balls Illustrated Daily's Rufus Reno that Mrs. Obama gives much better hugs than Ann Romney, Callista Gingrich, and Kathryn Limbaugh all put together.
America's First Lady is certainly showing the world that she is very supportive of her country's Olympians.
She recently met with U.S. lady wrestler Elena Sergey Pirozhkov who is an avowed lesbian. As the two exchanged pleasantries Pirozhkov asked Mrs. Obama, who stands 5-foot-11-inches tall if she could pick her up. A surprised Michelle replied, "Sure, why not I'm not the least bit homophobic."
The American wrestler, who is only 5-foot-1-inch tall instantly swept President Obama's wife off of her feet. The First Mama smiled and appeared to enjoy the nice gesture.
Secret Service Agents looked on with extreme concern but the smile on Michelle's face told them everything was cool.
Mrs. Obama asked (Elena) if she was heavy. She replied, "Not a bit. And let me say that you have the best figure of any politician's wife that I have ever picked up.
[EDITOR'S NOTE: It is my understanding that Elena Pirozhkov has, at one time or another, also picked up Laura Bush, Hillary Clinton, Maria Shriver, and Jill Biden.]
