President invites Seahawks to White House

Super Bowl XLVIII – Seattle Seahawks v Denver Broncos

WASHINGTON – The President has invited the Seattle Seahawks to the White House next Wednesday to honor the team for their Super Bowl XLVIII victory.

The White House said President Obama will greet the team May 21st in the afternoon.

The visit continues the White House tradition of honoring sports teams.  Calvin Coolidge was the first president to invite a team to the White House (the 1924 Washington Senators), and George
W. Bush invited sports champions of all sorts to the White House — a practice Obama has continued.
