Tom Brady, Tampa Bay Buccaneers visit White House

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers, champions of Super Bowl LV, visited the White House and President Joe Biden on Tuesday.

Biden introduced the team by talking about his fellow Delaware native and Buccaneers wide receiver Chris Godwin and discussed how he almost went on to play football in college.

On Godwin, Biden said the two talked before the Super Bowl, calling him a “star receiver” and said he was inspiring a “whole lots of kids back home in Delaware.”

“Born in Pennsylvania, raised in Delaware, where I come that’s a heck of a combination man,” the president said.

Tom Brady then took the stage and delivered his remarks on the team’s performance during the first weeks of the last season.

“It didn’t look great there at one point, seven and five struggling a little bit,” said the 7-time Super Bowl champion as he recalled his team’s modest start to the 2020 season.

“But we found our rhythm got on a roll. Not a lot of people think that we could have won. In fact, I think about forty percent of people still don’t think we won, right Mr. President,” joked Brady, throwing jabs at the previous occupant of the Oval Office.

Biden responded, “I understand that,”which was followed by a laughing audience.

It is a custom of the winning team from four major sports leagues, NBA, NFL, NHL and MLB, to come to the White House and be welcomed by the sitting administration.

Tampa Bay won its second Lombardi trophy by defeating Kansas City 31-9 in February.
