WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama Wednesday welcomed the Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens to the White House, congratulating the team on its unlikely Super Bowl run -- and offering some good-natured jibes along the way.
Quarterback Joe Flacco was singled out for winning the Super Bowl's most valuable player -- and a miracle touchdown pass at a playoff game in Denver -- which helped him win a huge $100 million-plus contract in the off-season. "Good timing with that contract up," Obama said. The graying Obama praised safety Ed Reed for the Super Bowl's only interception, though he noted Reed's sprouting some gray hairs of his own. "You're looking like an old man," Obama said.
