The Baltimore Ravens Are White House Bound

USA TODAY Sports

It is an age-old tradition for professional teams who win their league's championship to visit the White House and meet the President of the United States. That tradition will continue when on Wednesday the Baltimore Ravens make their trip to the White House to visit Barack Obama in honor of their Super Bowl 47 victory. The entire event will be aired on the Baltimore Ravens Official Website as our purple-birds make their (not-too-far) journey to our nation's capital. This trip will be the final destination of Baltimore's historic 2012 season.

UPDATE: Below is the official White House press release, from the PR Dept. of the Baltimore Ravens:
