Richard Sherman dining with Obama

Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman will be one of the celebrity guests Saturday night at the annual White House Correspondents' Dinner, which will be attended by President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama.

Sherman, along with his girlfriend, Ashley Moss, will be at the Huffington Post table with founder Arianna Huffington.

Other NFL players invited to attend the prestigious event include Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton, Minnesota Vikings running Adrian Peterson and Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck, along with his father, former NFL quarterback and West Virginia University athletic director Oliver Luck.

Actor/comedian Joel McHale will host the event, which is held at the Hay-Adams Hotel in downtown Washington, D.C. The event always includes a lot of good-natured ribbing at political officials.
