ESPN’s College GameDay may be getting its most famous guest appearance yet in the program’s 27-year history – President Barack Obama. Sports Illustrated is reporting that the Commander-in-chief is entertaining the idea of making an appearance on the popular college football pre-game show. Tiger Woods is also on the short list.

ESPN’s Lee Fitting told SI.com:

“The President has expressed interest and as crazy as it sounds, he might come whenever he can fit in. It sounds crazy to even talk about, I know. Tiger has also expressed interest and we have talked to his agent, Mark Steinberg. He just has to work it into his schedule. We are talking about going to Stanford for it.”

Obama has made it clear that he’s a big college sports fan, as he’s seen annually¬†filling out brackets for March Madness on ESPN. He’s also had his administration look into the legality of the BCS.¬†

You’d expect the ESPN staff to be extra conservative on what signs they let fans bring to the event…
