'Bama to visit with Obama
Ah, the perks of winning the BCS Championship.
The 14-0 Alabama Crimson Tide will visit the White House Monday to meet with President Obama, according to the Associated Press. The team will also meet with area youth as part of a service project prior to their meeting with the President.
The last we saw head coach Nick Saban’s Crimson Tide, they were putting the finishing touches on a 37-21 BCS title game win over the Texas Longhorns in which a ferocious Alabama defense forced five turnovers.
In addition to meeting with the President, the team will also visit the U.S. Capitol, Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum and National Mall on their trip to Washington D.C.
If you’ll remember, this isn’t the first time Nick Saban has been invited to the White House.
While coaching the Miami Dolphins in 2006, Saban was invited to dinner by then-President George W. Bush.
