Malcolm Mitchell: 'Almost brought me to tears' to be mentioned by President

The New England Patriots are scheduled to visit the White House today to have their Super Bowl LI victory recognized by President Trump.

"I think I got this, but thank you", Spicer replied, and Gronkowski asked "Are you sure?"

The flashbacks came and went, players and moments of the finest comeback in Super Bowl history relived on the White House's South Lawn. The team presented the president with a personalized "Trump" No. 45 jersey and a helmet from February's Super Bowl, the first such game to go to overtime.

Players have turned down White House invites ever since such events began to take off under President Ronald Reagan. They included running back LeGarrette Blount, defensive end Chris Long, defensive tackle Alan Branch, linebacker Dont'a Hightower, tight end Martellus Bennett, and safety Devin McCourty.

Several Patriots players kept to their vows to skip the White House ceremony in protest at Donald Trump's presidency.

Reports indicate a handful of other players chose not to attend for political reasons.

Trump's welcome to the team, scheduled for early afternoon, is coming hours after the news from MA prisons officials that ex-Patriot tight end Aaron Hernandez hanged himself in his prison cell. "With your backs against the wall and the pundits - good ol' pundits, boy they're wrong a lot, aren't they - saying you couldn't do it, the game was over".

Kraft and Trump are close friends, with the National Football League owner easily contributing $1 million to the new president's inauguration festivities, according to filings registered with the Federal Election Commission.

"When my son grows up and I believe the legacy of our president is going to be what it is, I don't want him to say, 'Hey Dad, why'd you go when you knew the right thing was to not go, '" Long says in the video. One of Trump's signature "Make America Great Again" hats was spotted in Brady's locker in 2015. I'm going to give you another one'. Apart from his friendship with Kraft, Trump namedropped Brady and coach Bill Belichick at various points on the campaign trail.

"Uh, okay, thanks, man", Spicer said with a grin. "Uh".
