In what will be the final leg of their Super Bowl XLVI journey, the New York Giants are scheduled to visit the White House on Friday, June 8th. After that, their desire will only be to look forward; leaving the 2011-2012 where it belongs … in the past.
“All those things were wonderful experiences,” head coach Tom Coughlin said. “David Diehl mentioned closure, it’s probably not quite closure but it’s time to move on.”
In the mean time, Big Blue will prepare for a face-to-face with President Barack Obama, who called Coughlin moments after they defeated the New England Patriots 21-17. During their five-minute conversation, the president called the Giants “courageous, mentally tough, resilient people who believed in each other."
For some members of the New York Football Giants, this will be their second White House visit. In April of 2008, following their Super Bowl XLII victory over the Patriots, the team met with then President George W. Bush on the lawn of the White House, where he praised both Eli Manning and David Tyree, as well as Lt. Col. Greg Gadson.
