The Tampa Bay Buccaneers visited the White House on Tuesday to celebrate their victory in Super Bowl LV -- the team's first visit with the president, as the Bucs did not go to Washington following their 2003 Super Bowl win. How did the ceremony go for Tom Brady & Co.?
Players took videos while touring the White House, Brady had jokes for President Joe Biden, and the team presented the president with the traditional gift of a No. 46 jersey.
Here's a roundup of the visit via social media.

Brady's won seven rings but he hasn't been to the White House since 2005. He missed the last two visits and the Patriots didn't go in 2019. pic.twitter.com/OUhiCr2aTG

Tom Brady's got jokes today. He said, "I think about 40% of the people still don't think we won," regarding the Super Bowl (and the election).— JennaLaineESPN (@JennaLaineESPN) July 20, 2021
And he challenged 11 White House interns to a game of football on the lawn. "We intend to run it up on you guys," he said. pic.twitter.com/VTHDQptTDM
