“He’s a big fan.”
The commander-in-chief has a two words of advice for the comeback kid of the NFL: “slide more.”
At a campaign stop in Oakland on Monday, Obama asked Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha, who introduced the president at the event, to transmit a message to his teammate, quarterback Mike Vick.
“He told me to tell Vick to slide,” Asomugha told the Philadelphia Inquirer on Wednesday during training camp. “Promise. 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.”
