So what was Obama's secret speech for the sports conference all about?


Recommended Posts


President Obama made a speech before the Sloan Sports Analytics Conference, and everyone there was told to keep it a secret.

According to MassLive:

In a bizarre demand, the MIT Sloan Sports Analytics Conference apparently called for attendees of Obama's speech, which took place inside the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center, to keep it a secret.

"The 44th President of the United States, Barack Obama, will address the 2018 Sloan Sports Analytics Conference on February 23, 2018 at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center," a description of the ESPN-sponsored event says.  "A lifelong sports fan and athlete, President Obama will address a wide range of subjects in his talk, from his most memorable moments in the White House, to his post-presidency plans."

But attendees and members of the media were given a policy that requires them not to talk about it.

That's a good way not to keep it a secret.  Here's one leak from the MassLive website:

"Getting diversity around you isn't hard if you are intentional about it. If you say you can't diversify your team, you just aren't trying hard enough." @BarackObama @SloanSportsConf #SSAC18 #changetheratio

The group is dedicated to affirmative action for women in sports and obviously was so pleased at what he said (having paid good money to be there to hear it) that its members weren't about to keep what they liked about the speech secret.  Being lefties, they worship the man, after all.

But seriously, a sports conference?  Obama?  Who can barely ride a bicycle, let alone play sports?  He's not exactly the guy who'd know all that much about the topic enough to keep a secret on, except for the fact that major-league sports is getting increasingly politicized by the left, and Obama is the left.


Don't talk about sports conference club?
