The Seahawks arrived in the nation’s capital late Tuesday night fewer than 24 hours before earning the privilege to meet President Barack Obama.
Today, the defending Super Bowl champions will be at the White House to be honored by the President for winning the biggest football game of the year, for the first time in franchise history.
The team’s official website announced it will be streaming the event live on Seahawks.com.
The team also made this announcement:
Fans may also follow the team’s journey via the Seahawks social media accounts including: @Seahawks on Twitter, @Seahawks on Instagram, the team’s Facebook page at Facebook.com/Seahawks or Snapchat by adding user name “Seahawks” to their friends list.
The official start time of the ceremony had not been officially announced as of Tuesday night, but it is expected to begin in the early afternoon, Eastern time, and mid-morning, Pacific time.
Many Seahawks said they were “humbled” to be involved in what could be a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
“This is big, real big,” said Brandon Mebane in the same article. “Going to the White House after winning the Super Bowl, I’ve been seeing it on TV all this time. Now I’m actually going to it.”
Hopefully it’s not the last time these players visit the White House. But we’ll have to wait until next season to determine that.
For now, the Seahawks will just enjoy the moment and reflect on the franchise’s best season while celebrating in the nation’s capital with the nation’s leader.
