Tampa Bay Buccaneers visit White House for celebrations hosted by Joe Biden
American football team, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, including quarterback player Tom Brady, visited the White House on Tuesday. Brady, who had rejected several invitations to the White House earlier, turned up at the last moment at the ceremony hosted by President Joe Biden to celebrate the team’s Super Bowl victory.
The Buccaneers were a “testament to the fact that it’s never too late to come together and achieve extraordinary things,” Biden said while commending the team for overcoming an inauspicious start and for winning the Super Bowl during the Covid-19 pandemic.
“It’s nice for me to be back here,” Brady said about his visit to the White House.
The quarterback player’s last visit was in 2005. He skipped the visit during Trump’s presidency citing “personal family matters” as the reason, which angered the former president.
Brady also skipped out on a White House visit during Barack Obama’s presidency for a similar reason.
