Trump says Chiefs could celebrate Super Bowl at White House as soon as this week

Trump says Chiefs could celebrate Super Bowl at White House as soon as this week

The reigning Super Bowl LIV champions could be taking a field trip to D.C. as soon as this week, according to President Trump. 

While speaking in the East Room of the White House last Thursday, President Trump said “the Super Bowl champions are coming, I think next week."

“Soon. Very soon," Trump reiterated in pool reports." "Every one of them want to be here. And the coach loves us. The coach is great -- Andy Reid."

In his postgame press conference immediately following the Super Bowl, Reid said he would visit the President's historic house to celebrate the victory.

“I mean, I’ll be there,” Reid said following his first Super Bowl victory. “I’ll be there. If they’re inviting us, I’ll be there. It’s quite an honor, I think.”

Chiefs players have been divided over the celebratory tradition as most teams have since Trump took office in 2017. WR Tyreek Hill told the Kansas City Star "that would be great to go to the White House" since he has never visited to D.C. before. 

DE Frank Clark did not commit to celebrating the championship at the White House with his teammates because of "a lot of mixed emotions about stuff going on there."

Oshie gets warm All-Star welcome on St. Louis return, scores with dad in attendance

Former St. Louis Blues forward T.J. Oshie was welcomed back to Enterprise Arena fondly by the NHL All-Star crowd that included his family.

At the end of Oshie's entrance on to the ice, the camera showed plenty of Blues players cheering for him. In seven seasons with St. Louis, Oshie played 443 games and talled 310 points (110 G, 200 A) and a +71 plus/minus rating. He even served as an alternate captain for his final two seasons before being traded to the Capitals for Troy Brouwer, Pheonix Copley and a 2016 third-round draft pick. 

That wasn't all for Oshie's All-Star performance -- he scored 5:29 into the first period to give the Metropolitan Division team a 3-2 lead.

Oshie is the eighth Capitals player in franchise history to score in the NHL All-Star Game.

Oshie's family, including his dad, Tim, affectionately known as "Coach Osh," was in attendance to witness his first All-Star appearance, making the moment even more special.

John Carlson becomes first Capitals defenseman to score in NHL All-Star Game

John Carlson becomes first Capitals defenseman to score in NHL All-Star Game

In his second NHL All-Star appearance, John Carlson became the first Capitals defenseman ever to score in the marquee event when he put the Metro Division on board with a little help from his Washington teammates.

In a full-rink effort, T.J. Oshie slings Braden Holtby's save to Mat Barzal at center ice, who passes it over to Carlson at the opposite faceoff dot for a quick one-timer just 2:13 in to the first period. This was the Metro Division's first goal of the night. 

Enough said.
