Judging from a photo snapped during one of President Barack Obama’s basketball games, it seems Ken Salazar has been getting quite a workout. And so is Obama, as The Awl points out in a fun and winding blog post with Air America’s Ana Marie Cox and the Huffington Post’s Jason Linkins.

Writes Cox, “Now, direct your attention all the way to the back of the picture. Next to Obama, that’s poor Ken Salazar, without his cowboy hat, made to run the fast break.” (See larger photo here.)

Linkins: “I feel for him.”

Cox: “I think his shirt says ‘Dad!'”
