Austin, TX (CNN) – Rick Perry may have gotten the sign he's been waiting for.
Standing on the sidelines in the race for 2012, the Texas governor on Monday visited a video game manufacturer in Austin where designers came up with a unique way to get the potential Republican candidate on the playing field.
On a jumbo screen inside the offices of a division of EA Sports, a scene from one of the company's popular college football video game was playing out, featuring Perry as quarterback for his alma-mater, Texas A&M.
In the scene, Perry throws a touchdown before a stadium full of cheering fans.
As Perry left the room, a reporter shouted, "hey Governor, are you in the game?"
It was a reference to EA's catch-phrase "if it's in the game, it's in the game."
The Governor did not respond and hustled off the stage.
It won't be that easy in the full contact sport of Presidential politics.
Over the weekend, Perry stoked more speculation about his future plans after telling the DesMoines Register in an interview that he felt "called" to run.
"This is what America needs," Perry said in the interview.FULL STORY on the CNN Political Ticker
