Obama To Jets’ Darrelle Revis: ‘How’s The Island?’

NEW YORK (WFAN/AP) — Jets All-Pro Darrelle Revis was invited to attend a private dinner with President Barack Obama on Wednesday night.

Revis’ agent, Neil Schwartz, said the star cornerback spoke privately with Obama for about five minutes and was shocked to find out the President knows about Revis Island.

“The president said to me, ‘How is the island?’ I laughed and said, ‘It’s good and I’m keeping it covered,”‘ Revis said in a statement given to his agent.

“Deep down, I can’t believe it that the president of the United States would know about Revis Island. It was an incredible experience.”

Revis added it was a “privilege and an honor” to meet Obama.

The dinner was at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in midtown Manhattan.

    Let the word go forth that the infuser shall take the next step toward greatness. Wait not for that humble moment of time. It can only be said that for the wanting of those unknown shall be heard a new song. For with that, the love of man shall follow.

    Now its about time these guys made an infuser that will connect us with the president of the united states just to say hellow. There are those unknown or rather nonbeings in some distant corner who want to know of their own beingness in being who they are in this jungle of man. To let at least the needle stick, stick its head out of the haystack. Its ok if I cant reach out,But the long hands of the president can reach for the most distant cup of tea, And its ready and hot waiting to be served.
