WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama congratulated the University of Louisville men's basketball team on working toward a single goal - ``to bust my bracket.''
Obama picked Indiana to win the 2013 NCAA tournament, but Louisville came out on top. For that, the Cardinals were rewarded with an appearance with the president in the White House East Room.
Obama teased coach Rick Pitino for shirtless photos on the internet that prove he didn't ``chicken out'' on his promise to get a tattoo if the team won the championship.
Pitino gave Obama a team jersey and a red Louisville Slugger baseball bat commemorating the victory. Pitino joked it may come in handy at difficult press conferences.
