Philadelphia Eagles Undecided On White House Visit
May 18 2018 by Marjorie Miles
The initial invite was received last month but some players, most notably Chris Long and Malcolm Jenkins, previously said they will not be taking up the chance for the traditional celebration with Trump.
A date has been set for the Eagles' invitation to the White House. "President Trump looks forward to welcoming the Philadelphia Eagles to the White House on June 5th to celebrate their Super Bowl LII win", White House Deputy Press Secretary Lindsay Walters said in a statement.
Trump's presidency has thrown a wrench into the tradition of championship teams visiting the White House, as many players who oppose his presidency have stated they wouldn't go; Trump rescinded an invitation to the National Basketball Association champion Golden State Warriors after the players and coach Steve Kerr indicated they weren't planning on going anyway. "My son grows up, and I believe the legacy of our president is going to be what it is, I don't want him to say, 'Hey dad, why'd you go [to the White House] when you knew the right thing was to not go?'" It's a celebratory event, and I want the guys who choose to go or whatever to enjoy that. While there is some hope he could participate in organized team activities or minicamp, the more concrete goal is to be ready for training camp in July, sources said.
'Deadpool 2' explosion of crass comedy, awesome action
Now, all our superhero movies are amusing and self-referential, lessening the unique value proposition at stake for " Deadpool 2". Point the first: As portrayed by Ryan Reynolds , the character of Deadpool , also known as Wade Wilson, has always been annoying.
Instagram will tell you how much time you spend
Instagram is developing a new feature to show users just how long they spend on the app, its chief executive has confirmed. This will make it easier for Android device owners to limit their smartphone usage, by setting restrictions.
"I just don't feel welcome into that house". But for many Eagles, Trump represents a clashing of politics and ideology. However Eagles fans responding to a poll on the matter voted 63% in favor of the team showing up on June 5th for their picture. The Eagles are in their last round of voluntary OTAs during that time.
Just don't expect team leader and safety Malcolm Jenkins to be there. Sometime during this process, you'd have to think team ownership gave players the reassurance they were seeking to counteract Donald Trump's call for mandatory participation in "acts of patriotism".
