Presidential politics can be a bloody business, but it was a friendly basketball game Friday that gave President Obama a cut on his lip that required 12 stitches. Playing in a post-Thanksgiving pickup game with visiting family members and personal aide Reggie Love, Obama caught an elbow to the lip. The injury was treated by the medical unit located on the first floor of the White House. Obama was given a local anesthetic. The medical staff used a procedure that required more stitches than usual in an effort to minimize the scar.

Presidential politics can be rough-and-tumble, but it was a friendly basketball game on Friday that gave President Obama a cut on his upper lip requiring 12 stitches. Playing in a post-Thanksgiving holiday pickup game with visiting family members and administration aides, Obama was on defense when a player turned into him to shoot and elbowed him in the mouth, according to the White House. The culprit was Reynaldo Decerega, 38, director of programs for the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute, the White House said.

Opening a three-day Western campaign swing, President Obama said Wednesday night that if Republicans regained control of Congress they would reinstate policies that cut taxes for the richest Americans, make it easier for companies to pollute, and let middle-class families "fend for themselves. " "This election isn't about anger; it isn't about fear," Obama told a crowd of about 10,000 people at the Oregon Convention Center. "This election is a choice, and the stakes could not be higher.

SAN FRANCISCO -- Oregon State Coach Craig Robinson is also known as the first brother-in-law, as his sister is Michelle Obama, wife of President Obama. So where will Robinson be on Tuesday when the presidential election is held? "That's classified information," Robinson joked Thursday during the Pac-12 men's basketball media day. Robinson then said that he'd be in Chicago, the site of President Obama's election-night rally.  Robinson obviously expects Obama to win, but by how much?

Oregon State's basketball coach said Tuesday he won't be available to answer questions on next Tuesday's Pacific 10 coaches' call. Reaction: This team went 0-18 in conference last season, finally scrounged up a win this month, and now this first-year coach is big-timing the media? This had better be really important. "I'll probably be standing somewhere outside," Craig Robinson joked. Robinson will go from hosting Washington on Saturday to toasting Washington on Tuesday.

USC couldn't run down Washington last weekend but chased the media out of practice Monday in the aftermath of a game at Galen in which the guards (security) had to separate the guards (Daniel Hackett and Dwight Lewis). UCLA was picked to finish first in the Pacific 10 Conference by near-unanimous consent but is tied for third with four games left after allowing 82 points at home to Washington State, a team that had to pass a collection plate to collect 44 points against USC in January.

Get all the fun of a spring break binge without the hangover courtesy of the very funny '80s rewind of "Hot Tub Time Machine." This kitschy trip down memory lane features John Cusack as a fortysomething underachiever who makes a return trip to a fondly remembered ski lodge of his debauched youth with BFFs, played by Rob Corddry and Craig Robinson, and his nerdy nephew (Clark Duke). The hot tub that comes with the room also comes with special powers, and in a flash, they're transported back to a time when Spandex was new and Afros were in. It's great fun, and you won't need a designated driver to get home.
