Obama honors Alabama's championship football team
WASHINGTON - President Barack Obama says the University of Alabama football team's fourth appearance at the White House in seven years is a sign that he's brought it some good luck.
He says the last time a team went on a similar run was in the 1940s.
Alabama won college football's national championship in January after coming from behind to defeat Clemson.
During a White House ceremony Wednesday, Obama also noted the players' charitable work, including visits to retirement homes, hospitals and schools.
Obama added that he'd like to welcome the team back to the White House next year, but term limits will make it impossible.
Obama will be out of office at this time next year after serving two terms.
