We could be soon treated to quite the summit meeting, as two of the sports world’s favorite young girls may be set to square off. At least, that’s what will happen if Riley Curry accepts Leah Still’s challenge to a dance competition.
Still, the 5-year-old daughter of Cincinnati Bengals defensive lineman Devon Still has captured hearts over the course of her battle with cancer. Curry, who just turned 3 years old, became a national sensation this spring after appearing at — and dominating — daddy Steph Curry’s press conferences following playoff games.
Riley had a birthday just last week, and to mark the occasion, her mother posted video to Instagram showing the tyke doing the Whip/Nae Nae dance.
On Sunday, Devon Still posted to Instagram video of Leah issuing a challenge to Riley: “I saw your video — you think you can Whip better than me? I challenge you to do the Whip!” Still added this caption:
“I showed Leah the video of Riley doing the whip and all she kept sayin was daddy she can’t do it better then me… so I said if that’s how you feel then challenge her to a dance off so @stephencurry30 the challenge has been sent #RileyKilledTheWhip #ButLeahPracticeThisDanceSoMuchSheBeFeelingHerself #SheLoveSeeingRileyOnTv”
If this epic dance-off actually takes place, it wouldn’t be completely surprising to see ESPN broadcast “SportsCenter” from the site. And for those, like a certain graying sports blogger, who need some brushing up on what the heck this is all about, here is the video for Silento’s hit, “Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae).” (A video that has more than 69 million views on YouTube, by the way.)
