Yes, that is Bill Clinton, the former Leader of the Free World, as well as Russ Smith and Chane Behanan, two Louisville basketball players.
And yes, all three of them are rockin’ out with teammates in the locker room after the Cardinals took care of business against Villanova during the Big East Tournament on Thursday. Why? Because why not?
The locker room fun actually capped an extremely emotional day for Smith, who learned only hours before taking the court that his high school coach, the legendary Jack Curran, died at age 83 on Thursday. Playing in Curran’s honor, Smith led the Cardinals with 28 points. But after a day of tears, he finished the night sharing cheers with Arkansas’ most well-known fan.
The funniest part? These photos surfaced on the very same day RGIII photobombed Ken Starr, the federal investigator who first publicized Clinton’s affair with Monica Lewinsky.
Just try to imagine President George Washington doing something like this with some peeps after after his second term was up in 1797. Didn’t exactly have Instagram back then, did he?
Things are going very well for Rick Pitino’s Louisville Cardinals. So well that former President of the United States, Bill Clinton, hungout with them following their win in the Big East Tournament. The best thing about all these pictures is that the Louisville players were pretty much all babies when Bill Clinton took office in his first term. Some of them weren’t born at all...
Back in the Big East championship game for the third straight year, at the top where University of Louisville basketball belongs. The last time at Madison Square Garden, the scene of some pretty incredible memories.
One last game as a member of the Big East, with a band of Catholic schools taking the league in a different direction. First three seasons in the tourney abysmal, the...

Russ Smith returned to the scene of his youth Thursday, another basketball court in New York City, taking center stage at Madison Square Garden, returning as a third-team All America player, proving he belongs among the elite.

Louisville failed to score in the first two minutes of the game, but used a 15-4 run in the first half and never looked back. The Cardinals forced 25 Villanova turnovers, cruising to a 74-55 win.
Russ Smith led the way for the Cardinals scoring 28 points, 21 of those came in the second half. Smith connected on 10-of-11 free throw attempts. Luke Hancock continued his solid play, chipping...
Going to take a while to get used to the idea of Gorgui Dieng going away.
If NBA scouts have been paying attention the past few games, Gorgui is more than ready for professional basketball. His shooting has improved dramatically, complementing his shot blocking abilities. As his wrist healed, his ball handling has continued to get better. Have you noticed he gets at least one steal...
In a field where many athletes are seen as slackers and people who take the easy way out when it comes to academics. Louisville team captain, Peyton Siva, disproved that theory, as he won the Big East Scholar Athlete of the Year award for the 2012-2013 season.
Siva recorded a 3.77 GPA and is a finalist for the Lowe’s Senior CLASS award. Congratulations to Peyton Siva! It...
Although Louisville’s offense has drastically improved in the last month and wound up leading the Big East in scoring, it’s the Cards defense that makes them a national title contender. Even if Louisville has a cold shooting night, their ability to consistently get stops on defense will keep them in games against any team in the country.
Following Louisville’s win over Cincinnati...
Louisville and Villanova will square off tonight at Madison Square Garden in the quarterfinals of the 2013 Big East Tournament.

The win over the Wildcats gives Louisville its eighth straight win and moves into the Big East Tourney Semi-finals for the third consecutive year.
Two of the big problem areas for much of the Cards this season were three point shooting...
