Colts Heading To Nations Capital

Last updated on Monday, April 23, 2007

(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) - The Indianapolis Colts head to Washington, D.C. this morning where they will meet with President Bush.

The ceremony is scheduled to take place this afternoon in the East Room of the White House. It is the latest perk for the Colts following their victory in Super Bowl XLI.

Team owner Jim Irsay will charter a plane to take the team to the nation's capitol. The Colts are limited to taking 110 to the White House ceremony.

Head Coach Tony Dungy says invitations were extended to all players who were with the Colts in 2006, including those who have signed with other teams or have since been released.

The ceremony, which is expected to take about 15 minutes, usually consists of a few words from the President followed by the team presenting him with a jersey or a football.
