“If the president of the U.S. is saying I need to slide then I really need to start sliding. lol. Thanks Mr. President!”
– Michael Vick on Twitter
Nnamdi Asomugha, [Cornerback for the Philadelphia Eagles] spoke at an event for Obama on Monday in Oakland and introduced the president. They spoke afterward and the leader of the free world had some advice for Vick.
“He told me to tell Vick to slide,” Asomugha said.
“Promise,” Asomugha said. “We talked about football for about three or four minutes, and the one thing that stuck out: ‘Tell Vick to slide.’ He’s a big fan.”
Vick responded to Obama’s request on Twitter.
“If the President of the U.S. is saying I need to slide then I really need to start sliding. lol. Thanks Mr. President!” Vick wrote.
