Perhaps they drop the ball, because they've got nothing on it?

I didn't know they had balls to drop...

Proof & Anonymous- Yes, it's puzzling to figure out exactly what the Obama administration's problem is with balls. Sometimes they don't have any, sometimes they drop them, they never keep their eye on them, and sometimes they don't check the guest list to keep the Salahi family from crashing their balls.

On the plus side, Barack Obama at least breaks ethnic stereotypes yeah, playing basketball whenver possible. Never mind.
