First up for this Super Bowl week?
Philadelphia Eagles lineman Chris Long.
“No I’m not going to the White House,” Long told a Barstool Sports podcast. “Are you kidding me?”
Seeing as how Long was a member of the New England Patriots last season, this could be the second straight year he has to make a decision.
Long skipped the Patriots visit last year after the team won Super Bowl LI.
“My son grows up, and I believe the legacy of our president is going to be what it is, I don’t want him to say, ‘Hey dad, why’d you go [to the White House] when you knew the right thing was to not go?’ ” Long said at the time.
