President Obama to Honor Super Bowl Champion Baltimore Ravens at the White House

On Wednesday, June 5, President Obama will welcome the Super Bowl Champion Baltimore Ravens to the White House to honor the team and their Super Bowl XLVII victory.  The visit will also continue the tradition begun by President Obama of honoring sports teams for their efforts to give back to communities as part of their trip to Washington.
Ravens coach Jim Harbaugh and Ozzie Newsome joke via phone with President Obama.
 "It was a great game", said President Obama (a Chicago Bears fan) via a telephone call to Ravens' coach Jim Harbaugh and Ozzie Newsome, congratulating the team.  "But we're going to have to investigate who was behind that whole blackout thing."
The lights at the stadium went out for about 34 minutes during the third quarter of Super Bowl XLVII, shortly after the half-time show featuring Beyoncé.
"Thank goodness for a goal line stand at the end", joked Harbaugh.
The Ravens went on to defeat the San Francisco 49ers (and brother Jim Harbaugh), 34-31, to claim their second NFL championship.
Thousands of Ravens fans turned out at M&T Bank Stadium and walked the celebratory parade route to cheer for their team, and to witness the last season for retiring linebacker, Ray Lewis.
One can only imagine what the streets surrounding Lafayette Park and in front of the White House will look like come next Wednesday.
