Andy Reid can shed "choker" label with Super Bowl win

  Andy Reid can shed Andy Reid can shed "choker" label with Super Bowl winReid’s Kansas City Chiefs brought an end to a 50-year streak between Super Bowl appearances (we’re talking 800 games between regular season and postseason) with a 35-24 win against the Tennessee Titans in the AFC Championship Game. For Reid, 61, it ranks as no worse than the second biggest win in a head coaching career that began in 1999.

Taiwan's vice president-elect William Lai will go to this week's high-profile National Prayer Breakfast in Washington, he said on Monday, an event traditionally attended by U.S. presidents and which President Donald Trump was at last year. Lai, who assumes office in May, has angered China by.

Presidents traditionally invite championship- winning teams to the White House to celebrate their victories, though Mr. Trump has rescinded at least two such offers after players publicly said they would not attend. Last year, he withdrew an invitation for the Super Bowl -champion Philadelphia Eagles

Should President Donald Trump extend an invitation, Kansas City Chiefs coach Andy Reid said he plans to celebrate his Super Bowl win with a trip to the White House.

Reid, fresh off the Chiefs 31-20 win against the San Francisco 49ers at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami on Sunday, said he hadn’t thought about a potential trip to the White House — which is customary after winning a major championship. Quickly, though, Reid added that he will absolutely accept an invitation.

Coach Andy Reid came into the game as the winningest coach to have never won a Super Bowl . He was asked if he had felt comfortable when his team led by 20-10. “No,” he said . It’s going to sting for a while, but I’m going to have to put it behind me and get ready for next year.”

“I mean, I’ll be there,” Reid said. “I’ll be there. If they’re inviting us, I’ll be there. It’s quite an honor, I think.”

A congratulatory trip to the White House was a longstanding tradition for any team following either a league title or national championship. That tradition, though, has shifted significantly since Trump took office.

The New England Patriots did not visit Trump after winning the Super Bowl last year, and the Philadelphia Eagles had their invitation revoked after many players said they would not attend in 2018. LSU just visited the White House after its national title this month, and Clemson went the year prior — and the Tigers were served a massive selection of fast food presented on silver platters.

Reid celebrated the Super Bowl -clinching run with a calm, cool, and collected raised finger to signal for the extra point. The Kansas City Chiefs won their first Super Bowl in 50 years Sunday night, but head coach Andy Reid was cool under pressure all the way through.

Andy Reid interrupted his Super Bowl celebration to compliment Randy Moss on his parenting and ask for his son to play for the Chiefs. After Moss said he would , Reid added, "It was great to see you as a dad. That's always great. I was there when you were a rookie, and we couldn't stop you when we

The Virginia men’s basketball team did not go to the White House after their national championship last year, and the Golden State Warriors skipped the visit after their previous two NBA Finals wins.

Several notable women’s teams have not received invitations at all, either. The Minnesota Lynx did not hear from the Trump administration after winning the 2017 WNBA Finals, and the Seattle Storm made it more than clear that they did not want to visit after winning in 2018.

Regardless, Reid plans to make the trek to Washington, D.C., if Trump reaches out.

How many members of his team end up joining him on that trip, however, remains to be seen.
