Dublin mayor Tim Sbranti posted this to Facebook a few minutes ago:

Just attended a U.S Mayors’ Conference reception at the White House. It was very crowded and I only had about 5-10 seconds of President Obama’s attention. Knowing that he’s a basketball player in his spare time, I asked him to give one bit of advice to the Dublin High basketball team that I help coach. The President said to tell our guys to “Play defense. As long as they play good defense everything else on the court will take care of itself.” Excellent advice for the Gaels directly from the leader of the free world.
