The Denver Broncos are heading east early next week. The Broncos will visit the White House on Monday as part of their Super Bowl 50 victory lap.
President Obama will honor Denver for its 24-10 win over the Carolina Panthers in February. Hopefully, he will also dish out a couple playful barbs to the Broncos’ player and staff.
When the Golden State Warriors visited the White House in February to celebrate their championship, Obama quipped, “Now it is rare to be in the presence of guys from the greatest team in NBA history. So we’re pretty lucky we’ve got one of those guys in the house: Steve Kerr, from the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls.”
Kerr, who won five rings as a player with the Bulls and Spurs, won his first championship as a head coach last season with Golden State.
It’s unclear if players from last year’s Denver roster who have since left in free agency — most notably quarterback Brock Osweiler and defensive lineman Malik Jackson — will attend.
