Louisville celebrates with Bill Clinton after beating Villanova (Pictures)
If you can think of a better way to celebrate a big victory than chilling with Bill Clinton, I would love to hear it. The guy’s a legend, and the legend made a surprise appearance in the Louisville locker room after the Cardinals beat Villanova in the Big East quarterfinals on Thursday night.
For those of you who can’t make it out, Clinton is the dude with the white hair in the photo above being given the bunny ear treatment. For a better look at the 42nd president of the United States, here are a couple pictures of Louisville forward Chane Behanan photobombing the crap out of him.
“That’s just me,” Behanan told CBSSports.com when asked about the photos. “I’m just that type of person with anybody. He loved us — hopefully.”
Apparently Clinton and Louisville head coach Rick Pitino are good friends, dating back to the 1990s when Clinton was campaigning and made a visit to the Kentucky campus when Pitino was coaching the Wildcats.
“We all approached him — very slowly,” Behanan said. “He was telling us about becoming a president, how things were, traveling, and he talked to Gorgui (Dieng) about visiting Senegal, asked what city he (Dieng) was from. I thought I’d never meet a president. An honor and a blessing.”
Clinton spent about ten minutes with the team, and Behanan praised him for his “swag.” If you remember, this isn’t the first time Clinton has celebrated with a team in the locker room after a big victory. For obvious reasons, he wasn’t holding an ice cold Budweiser in his hand this time around.
