White House Invites Blackhawks To Visit
The 2015 National Hockey Champions have been invited to the White House to visit with the President. Here's what they said to the invitation.
It's always a great day to be a Chicago Blackhawks fan when your team wins a Championship. It's also a great day when you get an invitation to visit with the President of the United States at the White House.
What did Coach Q and the Blackhawk say to the invite? Yes, of course.
The Chicago Blackhawks said yes to the invite without hesitation.
They will be traveling to Washington D.C. on Thursday, February 18, 2016 to meet the President, who is a Hawks fan since his arrival in Illinois years ago. No doubt, they will present him with a Blackhawks jersey with OBAMA printed on the back like a player. They presented him with a similar jersey the last time they won the Stanley Cup and visited the White House in 2013, and again prior to that in 2010.
The tradition of having professional teams being highlighted on White House grounds was started by President Obama. It is his way of "honoring sports teams for their efforts to give back to their communities" according to ABC-7 Chicago.
This all being announced on the same day that the Windy city was informed by the National Hockey League that Chicago will be the site for the 2017 NHL Draft as reported by ESPN.
Like I said, it's a great time to be a Chicago Blackhawks fan in the Stateline.
