Mayor of Akron

I was laughing at this response of Lebron James. In last nights game against the Chicago Bulls (in which the Cavs beat the Bulls and James went for a season high 41 points nine rebounds and six assists in 36 minutes), James had a shirt that had Barack Obama image with the words, President Elect.

He arrived at the game wearing a T-shirt with president-elect Barack Obama's likeness on it and was asked if he would consider a future in politics, perhaps as the mayor of Akron, his hometown.

"Mayor of Akron?'' he said. "I'm already mayor of Akron. I've been that for about 10 years now.''

He's not the actual mayor. What people don't understand is that there is a Mayor who is elected; does all the grunt work but no one knows him. Then you have the apparent Mayor who everyone knows and likes, doesn't do any work besides his or her career.

For instance in Chicago Mayor Daley is the actual Mayor. However, Barack Obama, Oprah Winfrey, and Antonio Dannes are the apparent mayors. Like Michael Jordan use to be the Mayor...Does that make sense? Well it should and shouldn't (funny). Ha ha ha ha ...

Well we thought it was funny any way.
