American President Barack Obama is a big fan of the sport. But he showed off his love of basketball and more as he watched the US Olympic men's hoops team play in Washington on Tuesday.

Obama and his wife Michelle were in attendance as the US men’s basketball team played Brazil. The couple was captured on the big screen and was prompted by the crowd to show a little love for the "Kiss Cam", but it looks like the first lady shook her head no.

But the "Kiss Cam" returned for round two, and after a little prompting from their daughter Malia, the pair gave the crowd what they wanted. The "Kiss Cam" is an in-house video that is popular in many North American arenas. Team USA beat Brazil 80-69.

The White House insists that the missing kiss was no diss. Sure, President
Barack Obama planted one on first lady Michelle Obama during Monday night's
exhibition game by the U.S. Olympic men's basketball team. But that was their
second appearance on the Verizon Center "Kiss Cam."
