Don't worry, I'm sure it will happen when they win an FBS title.

Division II North Alabama visited the White House in the 1990's, after their 3-peat, when Clinton was President.

They will compete in the Big South this year.

Unless it's a trend or the government is shutdown, the Bison should get a better meal.

I dunno

For some reason I kind of like the idea of the fast food thing at the WH...

Fast food deep fried, full of fat and sugars... it doesn’t get any more American than that

Embrace the chintzy

I guess the same thing can happen with fancy food but the problem with ordering something like a bunch of hamburgers is that not everybody likes them the same way. Like for instance I like cheeseburgers plain. Just meat and cheese. If I go somewhere and somebody gives me a hamburger with mustard and mayonnaise on it I'm not eating it. Or with pickles. Or with tomatoes. Lettuce I can handle but I'd probably take it off.

Most people aren't as much "plain" as I am but they still like or don't like certain things. I guess a safe choice would be to go with Chick Fil A chicken sandwiches. The only thing they put on those is a pickle and you can take that off if you don't like it.

Tough sh1t

It isn’t the Ritz Carlton it’s the goddamn White House. You eat what the fvcking serve you and then take your picture with the President of the United States of America

If I was President I’d serve NC barbecue from Short Sugars in Reidsville and dare them not to like it.

Except the Jews. They’d get chicken.

LOL! But I'm not the kind who cares about having my picture taken with the President of the United States. I think Ronald Reagan was the bomb but I would not have gone to Washington DC to have a picture taken with him. You can believe this or not but I got a prestigious award for stuff I did during the Deepwater Horizon thing. I was invited to go to Washington DC to receive it. Not from the President. But from a high official. I made an excuse not to go and said just to send it to me.

And I would've done the same thing if it'd been the President shaking my hand and giving me the award. I'm just not like that. I don't care. Whatever I do I do for other reasons. I am not impressed by stuff like people being famous.

I think they are planning other activities for the trip, like tours of historical places etc. It's a great opportunity for the student athletes to experience the National Capital.

Obviously I've never been in their position but I suspect that if I were on a sports team and my team were going on a trip like that I would go out of respect for other members of the team. But I wouldn't be looking forward to it. When I say I don't like going to the Washington DC area I'm just talking about me personally. Also I am not the type that gets excited over being around celebrities. I've run across a few in my time and when I do I pretty much act like I don't know who they are. I just act like they're any other person I might run across. And I couldn't care less about being in a photograph with anybody. I am not excited by the idea of meeting somebody famous. Couldn't care less.

I'm just a curmudgeon I guess. Like I have to go to the Washington DC area from time to time. In fact I have to go next week. But I have never seen any of the sites people like to go to. I've never been down to the mall where all the monuments are and such. Never seen the White House or the Capital Building. Never seen any of that stuff. No desire to see it. I just go to where i need to go, do what I need to do, and get out. Same thing will happen next week. I'll go stay in a hotel that's across the street from the building where my business is. I'll walk back and forth across the street each day to do what I need to do and when I'm done I'll come straight home.

There's more to DC than politicians, like the Smithsonian and other museums, monuments etc.

NC barbecue is ambrosia, and should be served at state dinners. Mickey D's not so much.

Short Sugars is on my list, but I don't get to Reidsville often.

You gonna be anywhere near the Air and Space Museum? I'm two blocks away. We should get lunch. We have a McD's in the building and they'll let you order a cheeseburger with nothing on it. That's if you can speak Spanish.

It’s a 20 minute drive from my house so I make a point of taking my dad there whenever I am home.

They don't put mayo on Chick Fil A sammies? :shock:

Now I know for sure it's over rated. :nod:
