According to Zach Berman of The Philadelphia Inquirer, the president on Monday chatted football with Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha, who spoke at an Obama fundraiser in Oakland, Calif.
Said Obama about the Eagles' QB: "Tell Vick to slide."
The president apparently is aware of Vick's struggles to stay healthy during his NFL career. Vick has played a full 16-game season just once in nine seasons.
Don't do it for Andy Reid, No. 7. Do it for America.
UPDATE: It looks like Vick might take the president's advice to heart. On Wednesday, Vick tweeted this in reply:
If the President of the U.S is saying I need to slide then I really need to start sliding. Lol. Thanks Mr. President!â Mike Vick (@MikeVick) July 25, 2012
