Denied the traditional Super Bowl champions' visit to the White House during the NFL lockout, the Green Bay Packers finally are headed to Washington. The Packers announced on their website that the team will visit the White House on Aug. 12, one day before their first preseason game in Cleveland. Packers president and CEO Mark Murphy says the team is excited to meet President Barack Obama. None will likely be more excited than cornerback Charles Woodson, who playfully chided Obama last season for not supporting the Packers in the Super Bowl after they beat Obama's Chicago Bears in the NFC title game.
