deBlasio’s challenge to Obama

Updated

President Obama, New York City Mayor Bill deBlasio is challenging you to a game of Basketball.

“President Obama and I are almost the same age. He has more basketball skills and practices a lot more, but I have height,” the 53-year old mayor said in New Yorker Alvin Javier’s Instagram video.

While riding the J train downtown, Javier bumped into Mayor de Blasio on the subway and took the opportunity to propose a challenge between the New York City Mayor and the President of the United States.

“I think he can beat Obama,” Javier said in the video. “This is his official challenge. Obama, my mayor is going to play you one-on-one at ball. Do you accept?”

President Obama, challenge accepted?
