The Alabama Crimson Tide, your undisputed heavyweight champions of college football this past season will visit the Barack Obama White House this Thursday. As champs, their are getting their reward by going to D.C. and visiting the powerful hizouse in the world.

Not sure what Barack’s college football team is. We know his pro team is the Chicago Bears. And of course he loves his Bulls and White Sox. And hoops is really his game of choice. Aside from politics, the most dangerous game of all.

Should make for an interesting day (at least more interesting than spring college football practice) when Nick Saban, Trent Richardson and company stop by 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. It’ll be a nice distraction from what just happened to their championship trophy- it shattered in pieces.
