New York Post reported: The Pittsburgh Penguins have accepted an invitation to attend a White House ceremony celebrating their second-straight Stanley Cup championship, saying they “respect the Office of the President” while agreeing with others who feel the need to take a knee in protest.
“The Pittsburgh Penguins respect the institution of the Office of the President, and the long tradition of championship teams visiting the White House,” the team said in a statement issued Sunday morning. “We attended White House ceremonies after previous championships – touring the historic building and visiting briefly with Presidents George H.W. Bush and Barack Obama – and have accepted an invitation to attend again this year.”
And addressing the controversy roiling the NFL after Trump on Friday called on team owners to fire players who kneel during the national anthem, the Penguins said they are aware of the need for expression.
What do you think of this? Do you agree with this decision, is your hope restored in the professional sports teams in the USA?
Well, this will cheer some people up, but the bigger picture tells us something different. BOYCOTT NFL! Good job, Penguins!
