Arizona Rep. Gosar Banging The Boards - and Some Lobbyists - As We Speak, So More At-Risk Kids In D.C. Can, Too (Play Basketball, That Is)

As we write this, Arizona Rep. Paul Gosar (R-CD4) is running the hardwood hard, playing in a Congressmen (yes, only guys on the roster) against a group of lobbyists game.  Yes, it is for charity - the Hoops For Youth Foundation, an organization that supports at-risk children in the District of Columbia, mainly by providing opportunities to play team sports.

No word yet on Gosar's strengths (or weaknesses) on the floor, but since the Representatives are playing a team of lobbyists, the possibilities for humor abound.  Example, something about no hand-checking allowed, only handing checks permitted.  PAC'ing the paint also takes on a whole new meaning.

No preparatory pictures have been posted - unlike the annual Congressional Baseball Game between Dems and Republicans.  However, the Hoops for Youth annual classic has apparently also featured now-Arizona Senator Jeff Flake, who is (of course) featured on their website!  Once we get a Gosar action shot, we will supplement.

In the meantime, here's where you can donate in Gosar's name.
