Brendon and the World Champion Baltimore Ravens Visit President Obama in the White House

Brendon Ayanbadejo White House VisitPresident Obama welcomed the World Champion Baltimore Ravens to the White House to congratulate the team on its Super Bowl win earlier this year. Brendon and the Ravens got the opportunity of a lifetime paying a visit to the President in Washington, DC on Thursday, June 5, 2013.

“I imagine there were times last year when these players were the only ones who knew that they’d make it here to show off this trophy,” President Obama said. Because, during the year, they lost player after player to injury; they dropped four of their last five regular season games. In the playoffs, they trailed Denver by a touchdown with 70 yards and less than a minute to go.”

And during the Super Bowl, he said, “just when it looked like they had the momentum, the lights went out for a half hour. But these Ravens always pulled through.”

President Obama also commended the team for their work helping others, especially in Baltimore. For example, the President announced today that the Ravens will be donating brand new uniforms for 42 varsity football and girls’ basketball teams at public schools all across Baltimore.

The excitement continues for Brendon and the Ravens as they received their Super Bowl rings this week.
