NFL RUSH
Super Bowl Champs Meet the President

The Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks made a trip to the White House to meet President Barack Obama. The President greeted them with open arms: As a guy who was elected president named Barack Obama, I root for the underdogs, so seeing folks overcome the odds excites me, but it also excites me when you see the whole being greater than the sum of its parts.

Commenting on the boisterous Seahawks team personality, Obama said I don't need to tell you how outstanding the Seahawks are because they did a pretty good job of describing themselves as outstanding during the year, mentioning that their defensive backfield named themselves the Legion of Boom!

True to their team personality and in a salute to their incredibly loud and loyal hometown fans, rather than the traditional #1 jersey, the Seahawks presented President Obama with a 12th Man banner!

Head coach Pete Carroll thanked the President and told him, "I do know you have access to some of the great special force units, but I want you to know that just a phone call away is the Boom."

How's that for support, Mr. President?
