Alabama’s big day at the White House

Alabama’s big day at the White House

The Alabama Crimson Tide football team had their big day at the White House yesterday.

Having perhaps a bigger day were the scores of Alabama politicians and politicos who live in Washington D.C. or who traveled up to take part in the festivities.

The event lit up social media with images like the one above. So, I captured a lot of them and put them in a story. Check out photos galore from Alabama’s visit to the White House below.

A big credit to Head Coach Nick Saban, who reportedly told his players it is an honor to visit the White House no matter who is occupying it.

Also credit to punter J.K. Scott who was seen gathering players around the president to offer a word of prayer. See below.

It sure seemed like they were praying for/over the commander-in-chief, which… wow. How many faithful grown ups would take it upon ourselves to do that?

Don’t worry, Auburn folks. We’ll get ’em next year. Wait, didn’t we get them last year?

(this post is being updated throughout the morning, so if you have a good photo from yesterday, send it on!)
