Everyone knows by now that President Obama is a huge basketball fan, so its not that surprising that he got the biggest name in basketball history in his corner for the upcoming election.
Now you have the chance to meet Michael Jordan and President Obama. Only, if you donate money.
If you donate money to Obama's re-election campaign, you will be entered into a drawing to meet the both of them at an event in New York City.
The campaign sent out an e-mail that said:
When Michael Jordan wrote a check to my campaign for U.S. Senate in 2004, I wasn't sure whether I should cash it or frame it.
Now Michael Jordan is taking his support to the next level. If you chip in $75 or whatever you can today, you'll be automatically entered for a chance to meet both of us at an event later this month in New York City.
You're invited to bring a guest -- so if basketball isn't your game, I encourage you to bring someone in your life who might enjoy meeting Michael and me over dinner, and maybe even shooting some hoops with some of the other basketball stars, past and present.
Now, I don't know if I'll want to sprint up and down the court that night, but I'm always up to launch a few jump shots. If you join me, don't be surprised if I challenge you or your guest to play.
Tonight is the deadline to throw your name in -- and, today only, every entry counts for two. Make a donation, and you'll be automatically entered.
Now, Jordan has never been much for politics. He's never fully endorsed anyone, but with Obama's Chicago roots and Jordan being Chicago royalty, the pairing just makes sense.
