September 18, 2012 – The 2011 WNBA Champion Minnesota Lynx were welcomed to the White House by President Obama on this date, who congratulated the team on winning the WNBA last season.
“Obama, who accepted a Lynx team jersey, heaped special praise on female athletes as a group. ‘As the husband of a tall, good-looking woman, and as the father of two tall, fabulous girls, it is just wonderful to have these young ladies as role models,’ the president said.”
