LSU Champs Go to the White House

“LSU has the honor of being the first school to win two BCS titles,” George Bush said. “This year, there is no split.”
Fans, many wearing purple dress shirts and ties, held their cameras and cell phones aloft to snap pictures of the team. LSU giants, such as defensive tackle Glenn Dorsey and lineman Herman Johnson, dwarfed the president.
“You stand beside him and tears just come to your eyes,” Dorsey said after the event. “I just didn’t want to say anything goofy.”
No, we'll leave that to the president, who is known to have a little foot-and-mouth every now and then.
“This is coach Les Miles’ first time celebrating here at the White House,” Bush said. “And a lot of folks are going to remember it because it’s the first time he’s being seen in public without a hat on.”
Wow, such insight and discernment. Anyway, the Tigers have come full circle now. No more accolades or banquets for this group of seniors, many of whom are about to graduate.
“This is the last thing we’re going to do as a team, coming to the White House and meeting the president,” running back Jacob Hester said. “I had a whole speech prepared to tell the president but when he shook my hand, I was like a 2-year-old.”
