It’s a scene we’ve come to expect from President Barack Obama on Election Day — pick-up hoops with his friends and staff members.

As Mary Ann Ahern of NBC Chicago points out, Obama did not play basketball the day of the 2008 New Hampshire primary — which resulted in a temporary, momentum-stopping loss to Hillary Clinton.

The president hasn’t missed a ‘game’ since.
