The Eagles received an invitation last month to visit the White House after winning Super Bowl 52, and it appears the team has accepted the offer.
According to 6ABC, the Eagles will celebrate their Super Bowl victory at the White House on June 5.
Although the whole team is invited, there could be some notable no-shows who decide against making the visit. Safety Malcolm Jenkins told CNN following the Super Bowl that he plans to skip the visit while defensive lineman Chris Long said on the “Pardon My Take” podcast, “No, I’m not going to the White House. Are you kidding me?”
Logistics and timing of the event are being determined.
The Rockets will wear a patch honoring Santa Fe High School — located about 30 miles from Houston — during Thursday’s Game 5 of the Western Conference finals against the Golden State Warriors. The patch says “Santa Fe HS.”
The Santa Fe school district announced that Rockets owner Tilman Fertitta, a fellow native of Galveston County, has extended invitations to the entire Santa Fe High School senior class to attend Game 5 at no cost. Food and transportation will be provided for the students who attend. Invitations also have been extended to school administrators, county officials and first responders.
The Santa Fe High School choir will sing the national anthem. There will be a moment of silence before the game, and a video honoring the Santa Fe High School victims and survivors will be displayed on the large screens over the Toyota Center court before the game.
Proceeds from a charity raffle will go to the Santa Fe Strong Memorial Fund.
