Ring, ring … It's President Obama

President Obama gave the Lynx a jingle Thursday, one day after the team won its third WNBA title in five years.

The Lynx gathered around an office table with a telephone conference speaker and laughed upon hearing the president ask, "Are you guys getting tired of doing this?"Obama went on to call the team "a juggernaut" and said he was looking forward to yet another White House visit from the squad.

The president also needled Lynx star Maya Moore a bit, reminding her that he beat her in a game of HORSE in 2009, when she joined her fellow Connecticut Huskies at a White House celebration of their NCAA title. "Yes, it is still my deepest regret," she said.

• Gov. Mark Dayton declared Friday "Minnesota Lynx Day". He will host the team at a 9:30 a.m. breakfast reception at the governor's residence.
