Pittsburgh Penguins visit White House

President Obama welcomed the 2008-2009 Stanley Cup Champion Pittsburgh Penguins to the White House this past Thursday. The ceremony was held in the East Room of the White House, where Obama joked with team captain Sidney Crosby about the fact that "Sidney must be pretty fast, cause there are some big hockey players and he's not one of them." Crosby is however (as Obama also pointed out) the youngest captain in history to win the coveted Stanley Cup.

On a side-note, it is a really surreal feeling to walk right through the front door of the White House???!
