Fact of the Day: Dolphin Honor

While the 1972 Miami Dolphins won the NFL's only perfect season, they were never invited by President Richard Nixon for an official White House visit. Many decades later in 2013, President Barack Obama invited the whole team for a visit since they never got to do so in the 1970s.

it hadn't become a tradition back then. Superbowl was still a new kind of thing.

I guess it's a good thing, although one can wonder why the president doesn't have more important things to attend to.

Even though I think Obama sucks, that was a nice thing for him to do.
