Is Obama a Husky fan?

ESPN just sent out its 1,089th press release — or so it seems — regarding something it is promoting in connection with March Madness.
This one actually seems interesting — President Barack Obama making his NCAA Tournament selections.
The press release says the picks will be revealed on ESPN and ESPN.com — where else? — Wednesday morning.
Included in the press release is this picture in which you can get a faint glimpse of the part of the bracket that includes the Huskies.
And if you look really closely, right above Andy Katz’s right forearm, it looks like you can see a “UE” peaking through, apparent evidence that Obama is picking the Purdue Boilermakers to advance to the Sweet 16 and play UConn.
I won’t say it says he’s picking them to beat UW since we can’t see the rest of the bracket and who knows? Maybe he’s going with the upset in the first round and he’s got “UE” beating MSU in the second round.
Either way, it looks like Obama has no, uh, hope for the Huskies to get past the second round.
