Celebrating Champions


Have you ever had a personal invitation to visit the White House?

While I’m sure mine (and yours, too) is lost in the mail, Auburn’s 2010 National Championship football team will get to take President Barack Obama up on his offer. The team will be honored at 2 p.m. CST today in a White House Rose Garden ceremony during which the president will give a brief speech before posing for photos with the players. The team also is scheduled to meet with Washington, D.C., area students.

The visit originally was supposed to happen on April 29 but was postponed after several devastating tornadoes hit Alabama and other states two days earlier
