Shooting Hoops Before The Big Night


From CBS News' Maria Gavrilovic:

(DENVER) Barack Obama played basketball with his "bodyman," Reggie Love and longtime Chicago friend, Eric Whitacker this morning as he tries to keep his energy up and mind clear for tonight's speech. Obama and friends went to the Denver Athletic Club just after 8:00 a.m., and played basketball for over an hour. No stats were provided from the game.

Obama turns to the court for good luck on every Election Day - and even though voters are not going to the polls today, millions will be listening to him tonight as he accepts the Democratic nomination. He may need a little extra luck for that.
