Packers headed to the White House?


About a month ago, I wrote a column right here that the Packers had been locked out of the White House and that it didn’t seem fair the league hadn’t given the team special dispensation to gather together for their rightfully earned trip to Washington D.C.

After all, it had been the Packers’ rallying cry at the end of last season.

Packers reporters tweeted within the last few minutes that Packers president Mark Murphy had been in touch with White House officials and it looks like the Packers could meet with President Barack Obama sometime in August.

That’s great news not only for Packers players, but for all football plans.

Lori Nickel had the following tweet that was similar to several others:

RT @packers #Packers have been in contact w/White House. Looking at August for visit. Murphy looks forward to Woodson, Obama shaking hands

We look forward to that day, too.
