Barack Obama Congratulates Bill Belichick, Patriots On Super Bowl Win

The New England Patriots are on to the White House.

President Barack Obama called Patriots head coach Bill Belichick on Thursday to congratulate New England on its Super Bowl XLIX win over the Seattle Seahawks, according to a press release issued by The White House. Obama said he’s looking forward to the Patriots’ visit to celebrate their victory.

Obama also noted how many players stepped up and made contributions toward the Patriots’ thrilling championship win, according to the release. Super Bowl MVP Tom Brady and cornerback Malcolm Butler were referenced by name.

The Patriots are no strangers to the White House, having visited the place three times when George W. Bush was in office. This marks the first time they’ll hook up with Barry O., though.
