Michelle Obama Makes ESPN SportsCenter Top 10 Plays (VIDEO, PHOTOS)


The only reward that First Lady Michelle Obama was seeking when she hosted members of the U.S. Women's National Soccer Team and a number of children on the White House lawn for the Let's Move! footy event on Thursday were some healthier little ones and some well-intentioned publicity for her healthy choices passion project.

And because she's the beloved FLOTUS, well, that publicity thing wasn't too hard to drum up.

Not only were there photographers galore at the event, videographers captured the scene, too. And then turned over some footage to ESPN, who decided that it was worthy of its Top 10 plays on Thursday night. How, exactly, there were nine plays better than this one, we're not sure (aside from the Yankees losing, of course!), but at least we get to see our tee and capri-rocking Michelle kicking round the soccer ball with the best in the world.
