The '72 Dolphins will visit White House

MIAMI -- It's been 41 years in the making. But the undefeated 1972 Miami Dolphins are finally making a trip to the White House.

United States President Barack Obama will honor the Super Bowl VII champion Dolphins on Tuesday at 2:05 p.m. ET, according to the team. Miami became an undefeated champion more than four decades ago, but that was before the tradition of White House visits began.

The 1972 Dolphins remain a major source of pride in Miami and will get another chance in the spotlight next week. No NFL team has been able to match Miami's undefeated title run.
