President Obama has been opening up a lot lately about his plans in 2017, when his second term and lease at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave comes to an end.

In a sit-down interview with ABC’s Barbara Walters, the commander in chief said his youngest daughter Sasha will have a big say on where the family lives after leaving the White House. And during a recent meeting with entertainment moguls at DreamWorks Animation, Obama shared his dream retirement job.

“At least I know what I want to do when I retire … host ESPN Sports Center’s Top 10 list,” the President said. According to The Hollywood Reporter, he was surrounded by “several studio executives” when he revealed his ideal post-term position — including Fox’s Jim Gianopulos, Sony’s Amy Pascal and CBS’ Leslie Moonves and Disney CEO Robert Iger, whose empire includes an 80 percent share of the athletic cable channel.

“Everyone had a good giggle,” a source who attended the private chat shared.

If the self-proclaimed basketball lover does to make a transition into sport television, this will be just another of his many firsts!

    I saw the president at the zoo. He took off his shoes and socks and put peanut butter on on foot and jelly on the other foot. He put both feet over the fence and the bear started to lick his feet. The president started to giggle. I am still confused about what I saw! It appeared the guy from the Abduction movie was with him. The guy from the movie put on the peanut butter and jelly. I did not see the presidents wife or his children for some reason.
