Victor Cruz has had one heck of a past year. From winning the Super Bowl to getting a phone call from the President of the United States. That’s right, Barack Obama actually called Giants’ wide receiver, Victor Cruz to help with his political campaign. During last spring’s Organized Team Activity practices, Cruz was summoned to the phone in the lobby of the Timex Performance Center. Via New York Post: “They just kind of reached out to me, when you get a phone call from the President you don’t tell him you’ll call him back, you go answer the phone,’’ Cruz recalled yesterday of his talk with President Obama. “He asked me if I could be helpful to his campaign and I told him whatever I could do to help. “He just told me how much of a fan he was of me and how if I wanted to help out, if I wanted to be a voice for the young people and help him out in any way possible. I told him of course.’’  Cruz then paused and added, “I was trying not to freaking blush the whole time.’’ This would be the second time the Giant’s stud wide out had a chance to talk with President Obama, as he met him last February at ABC Carpet and Home in Manhattan for a fundraiser. “I met him there, he shook my hand and instantly started doing the salsa when I first saw him,’’ Cruz said. “That was pretty cool. It was just one of the coolest things I ever had to do, to meet him.’’ Cruz is stoked that Barack Obama has been re-elected but still isn’t thrilled with the idea of the President being a Chicago Bears fan. “Unfortunately he’s still a Bears fan, he’s happy they’re doing pretty good this year, although he hasn’t thrown it in my face yet,’’ Cruz said. The post President Barack Obama reached out to Giants’ receiver Victor Cruz appeared first on New York Sports Kings.
