Seahawks will visit President, White House on May 21


Three months ago, the Seahawks defeated the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl XLVIII and now the team will travel to the White House to meet President Obama.

It’s tradition that the Super Bowl champion visits the White House after winning the big game. That tradition is said to have started back in 1969 when Joe Namath‘s New York Jets upset the Baltimore Colts.

In case you were wondering, every player and coach that was on the Seahawks last season is invited to attend, even those that left after Feb. 2 and are currently with other teams.

There is no word yet on whether or not Golden Tate, Chris Clemons, Red Bryant and others, who are no longer Seahawks, will attend the ceremony.

The time of the ceremony has also not yet been set, but it is expected to be in the afternoon.

Second-year lineman Michael Bowie tweeted that he was excited about the big day, which is less than a week away.
