The Prime Minister of Great Britian, David Cameron, accompanied President Obama to an opening round men's NCAA tournament basketball game in Ohio Tuesday as part of Cameron's state visit to the U.S. Some highlights from the White House pool reporters accompanying the pair to the game:
As the game started, Obama filled Cameron in on the details:
Seated with the president in the section behind one basket are Mr. Cameron, Downing Street chief of staff Ed Llewellyn, White House chief of staff Jack Lew, and Ohio Gov. John Kasich. Also seated in the section are University of Dayton students and university staff.
In the early moments of the first-round game between Western Kentucky and Mississippi Valley State, the score is tied at 4. At times, Mr. Obama appeared to be explaining aspects of the game to Mr. Cameron as they sat huddled next to each other.
Then the food came:
Shortly after the game started, two young women delivered three hot dogs – one each for Marvin Nicholson, Obama and Cameron. The prime minister put ketchup on his and both men ate the dogs pretty quickly. Cameron washed his down with a coke, POTUS with water.
More details as they break.
