Obama Stayed on Air Force One to Watch Final Minutes of Game 7 of the NBA Championship
The first family was returning from Yosemite Valley, California.
— -- Dads across the country were glued to their seats watching the final moments of Game 7 between the Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors on Father's Day -- including the commander-in-chief himself.
President Obama and his family stayed aboard Air Force One to watch the final nail-biting minutes of the game after landing at Joint Base Andrews on Sunday night, the White House confirmed to ABC News.
The first family was returning from Yosemite Valley after a trip to Carlsbad Caverns National Park in New Mexico and Yosemite National Park in California.
Air Force One had touched down at Andrews at 10:19 p.m., with less than two minutes remaining in the deciding game between the Cavaliers and Warriors.
At 10:37 p.m., moments after LeBron James and the Cavaliers finally brought a championship home to Cleveland, the president jogged down the steps of Air Force One followed by his daughters, Malia and Sasha, and First Lady Michelle Obama.
