President Obama to Eagles' Nnamdi Asomugha: ‘Tell Vick to slide’

Shortly after President Barack Obama spoke at his own fundraising event on Monday he decided to talk football with Philadelphia Eagles’ cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha, who was also in attendance.  Asomugha was on hand to introduce the president and afterwards Obama told him, “tell Vick to slide.” Obama was referring to Eagles’ star quarterback Michael Vick. Philly.com reports:

BETHLEHEM, Pa. — President Obama apparently feels the same way many Eagles fans feel when they see Michael Vick scrambling down field without a fear in the world.

Nnamdi Asomugha spoke at an event for Obama on Monday in Oakland in which he introduced the President. They spoke afterward about football, according to the Eagles cornerback, and the leader of the free world had some advice for the leader of the Eagles

“He did,” Asomugha said Wednesday after he reported to Lehigh University for the start of training camp. “He told me to tell Vick to slide.”
