Chiefs players say they’d accept Trump White House invite
The Kansas City Chiefs won last night’s Super Bowl in dramatic fashion. By way of a stunning 4th quarter comeback, the Chiefs defeated the 49ers 31-20.
Some believe that the Chiefs may well be the most likable team in sports. And now, the team is signaling that it would accept an invite to the White House from President Trump. Some sports teams, including the Philadelphia Eagles, have completely declined similar invites.
“I haven’t thought about that,” Chiefs coach Andy Reid said. “I mean, I’ll be there. So, if they’re inviting us, I’ll be here. … It’s quite an honor.”
Star wide-receiver Tyreek Hill echoed Reid’s statements.
“That would be great to go to the White House,” Hill said. “I’ve never been to (Washington) D.C., so that would be great.”
Safety Tyrann Mathieu added: “I’m here to represent the Kansas City Chiefs. I think my teammates feel the same way. Any time we get the opportunity to represent Kansas City the right way, represent our teammates the right way, I don’t see any wrong in that.”
The Chiefs have solidified themselves as the best team in football. Accepting a visit to the White House could equally solidify them as “America’s team.” People are exhausted by divisive maneuvering, particularly from highly paid professional athletes. The Chiefs stand to break the trend of White House invites being used as sounding boards for grievances.
Rejecting White House invite theatrics would be a great thing for America.
