The Ravens are headed to the White House. They will visit Washington and meet with President Obama on Wednesday, June 5, as a perk for winning the Super Bowl, the team announced Friday. It’s been a longstanding tradition for the president to greet sports championship teams. Obama had called the Ravens a couple of days after the Super Bowl, telling head coach John Harbaugh and general manager Ozzie Newsome that, “I just want to say congratulations. I know it was a bumpy season up and down. For you guys to stay steady the way you did is really a great feat.” The Ravens also visited the White House after their previous Super Bowl visit. They won't have their shiny, new Super Bowl rings to show Obama, though; the rings are being issued at a private ceremony two days later.
