I had the privilege of attending today's event honoring the New York Giants Super Bowl Win at the White House. It was the kind of thing only Giants fans would have found even remotely interesting. I, of course, thought it was the best day ever.
Quote of the day:
"We're going to send Jessica Simpson to the Democratic National Convention."
- President George W. Bush in speaking about the Dallas loss in his speech Wednesday honoring the New York Giants on their Super Bowl win.
Oh, and nothing turns a bunch of corporate DC suits into giggling, screaming schoolgirls like an autograph session with athletes. But the best was when the guy next to me gets David Tyree's autograph and then turns to me and asks "Who was that?".
Some pics of the event and new additions to my "Taking Pictures with Athletes" collection.
UPDATE: I failed to mention earlier that neither Shockey nor Strahan were in attendance. I asked Brandon Jacobs if the missing boys missed the bus, to which he replied, "Uh, I think they're out of town or something.".
I think that tells us all we need to know about next year.
