Alabama Gymnastics Snubbed? um.... yeah (update)

19

Here's my original post: As many of you may know, our gymnastics team won their 5th National this April, mere days before the Tornado hit. The new season is less than a month away and, from what I here from friends back in Tuscaloosa, the team has not been invited to Washington D.C. To be fair, this is not an isolated incident. The South Carolina Baseball team has also not been invited, being told that President has ended meeting with National Championship teams. If this is true, it's very upsetting. Last year President Obama invited around 30 Championship teams to the White House to honor them all at once so as not to be a constant distraction. Everyone got to meet the President, even Denver's Ski Team. It is disappointing that our great coach and outstanding athletes will miss out on an honor bestowed to last year's UCLA squad and multiple Georgia Gym Dog teams..... but hey, we won and they lost and that's all that really matters. Roll Tide! ------------------------ UPDATE I recently came across this link: http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/2011/10/06/president-obama-welcomes-texas-am-university-women-s-basketball-team The Lady Aggies won their title on April 5th while Alabama won theirs April 16th.... less than two weeks later. So... well I really don't know what to make of this other than WTH Mr. president? Oh well, I stand by my original statement: We won, they lost. Roll Tide!
