Champs visit Obama

President Barack Obama celebrated championship wins by two Los Angeles sports teams in a White House ceremony Tuesday. Obama honored the Los Angeles Kings of the National Hockey League, whose Stanley Cup was on display in the East Room. He also welcomed the LA Galaxy, the championship Major League Soccer team. Galaxy player Landon Donovan gave Obama a soccer ball that the president bounced on his head. Obama was also presented with a jersey emblazoned with his name. Obama said both L.A. teams have remarkable stories, but said he wishes his hometown of Chicago were winning championships, instead. The teams hosted an exercise clinic for children that supported first lady Michelle Obama’s anti-childhood obesity program. – AP
