I can’t believe I’m typing this. I can’t believe I received this in my inbox from Obama For America

Friend —

I’m so jealous of you that I can barely write the rest of this email.

Imagine shooting hoops with Carmelo Anthony, Patrick Ewing, Sheryl Swoopes, Kyrie Irving, and Alonzo Mourning. Oh, and you’ll get to meet President Obama and Michael Jordan over dinner, too.

Now stop dreaming and make it happen. You and a guest of your choice could join President Obama and some of the greatest basketball stars for a special night at the Obama Classic.

Pitch in $3 or whatever you can, and you’ll be automatically entered for a chance to win.

Hit the court with Patrick Ewing and Melo? Trade stories with the President? This is the kind of stuff your kids will tell their kids, and no one will believe it until you show them a photo.

Don’t worry if suiting up with hoops stars isn’t your thing.

I know you’ve got a kid or a friend who would love nothing more than to play with their heroes while you cheer them on from a courtside seat.

If you’ve been waiting for the right moment to chip in and support the President, it’s time to get off the bench.

Donate $3 to automatically get your name in the hat:

Even though I’m jealous, I hope you win.
