NFL's Abdullah brothers excused from camp for Ramadan dinner at White House
by Cindy Boren
Arizona Cardinals safety Hamza Abdullah and Minnesota Vikings safety Husain Abdullah have been excused from their teams' training camps for a day.
They're going to the White House.
The brothers were invited to tonight's Iftar dinner in observance of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan. "I'm still in shock over it," Hamza Abdullah said, via the Arizona Republic. "I'm still waiting to get to the airport and they say, 'Okay, it's fake.' "
The coaches of both teams quickly excused their players. "I wish you could have seen his face," Arizona Coach Ken Whisenhunt said. "It's kind of funny it came via e-mail, in a PDF form. The first thing he said was, 'Is this real?' "
