Arizona Cardinals OL Daryn Colledge Talks About President Obama And Senator McCain

No, this is not a sports and politics post. But it does involve politicians. Arizona Cardinals offensive lineman Daryn Colledge was a member of last year's Super Bowl champion Green Bay Packers. As is customary, the winning team gets to visit the White House and meet with the president. When the Packers got the invite, Colledge was no longer on the team and for one reason or another did not get invited. As one can be expected, he was quite disappointed.

This weekend, he will be in Washington, DC as the Cardinals play the Washington Redskins, which caused him to pose a question and also extend an invitation of his own.

Through his Twitter account, he offered this thought:

Headed to D.C. next week to play Washington. Wondering if @BarackObama is gonna invite me over for the visit I missed.less than a minute ago via Twitter for iPhone Favorite Retweet Reply

 

 

One of his followers had a better idea, and Colledge agreed.

"@cheesehed007: @barackobama DC be the bigger man and invite him 1st." That's a good point. I officially invite Pez to our game. Tix on me.less than a minute ago via Twitter for iPhone Favorite Retweet Reply

 

I think he meant "Prez" and not "Pez." He later corrected the tweet.

Colledge then had an even better idea:

I'd also like to invite my new senator Mr. McCain. You and the Prez can sit next to each other. If your not busy.less than a minute ago via Twitter for iPhone Favorite Retweet Reply

 

After learning Senator McCain's real Twitter handle, he extended the invitation formally:

"@cds0048 @SenJohnMcCain your undefeated Cards officially invite you to our game in D.C. If your not busy, tickets are on me.less than a minute ago via Twitter for iPhone Favorite Retweet Reply

 

 

While it's not likely going to happen, it's a nice thought and certainly would be fun politically to see Senator McCain and President Obama sitting next to one another, likely with opposing rooting interests. 

Considering how Colledge got snubbed on the White House visit, it would be a great story to have the President show to a game to meet and congratulate Colledge for his part on a championship team.
