Barack Obama Plays BrickBreaker on His BlackBerry Every Night Before Bed

The Real Reason Obama Needs His BlackBerry: BrickBreaker!

Forget obsessive emailing and texting and the need to be wired 24/7; turns out that the BlackBerry Barack Obama got to keep is his source of gaming — BrickBreaker, to be precise.

Star Magazine reports that the president plays BrickBreaker to unwind every night before bed. This is an executive decision I can totally understand.

And he apparently has a high score of 15,000. Not too shabby.

Presidents: gamers like us!

I'm all for having a little fun, and I hate to be the downer here, but it seems like to get that high of a school would take some serious game time...doesn't he have anything better to do right now?

Some of those gossip rags are reporting more real "news" than the media ;-) JirboJam is my bedtime poison.
