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 $X 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:
