President Barack Obama has had more face time on ESPN than any other president, so it’s only natural that, when this whole running the country thing is over for him, he would want to head to Bristol, Conn., … to make an appearance on “SportsCenter.”

In a recent meeting with Disney chairman and chief executive Robert Iger in California, Obama made his pitch, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

“At least I know what I want to do when I retire: host ESPN ‘SportsCenter’s’ Top 10 list,” Obama said and, the Reporter noted, “everyone had a good giggle.”
