Arne Duncan’s Barry Farm highlight reel

(Via YouTube)

Sure, we already knew Secretary of Education Arne Duncan likes to enjoy the summer basketball scene in the District, after photos emerged last year of Duncan playing in both the Kenner League and the Goodman League.

But mere photos can’t compare to his own playground highlight reel. Now granted, among the three highlights in this video package, one is of Duncan sitting down and one shows the Secretary getting dunked on. But he also drains a shot from distance, and has a nice chat with Goodman League commissioner Miles Rawls, who says that Duncan’s team is called “The Old Heads.”

“This is a lot of fun,” Duncan says. “I love coming out, you do an amazing job, and it’s fun to be out here and part of a team.”
