President Obama hosted the 2014 Stanley Cup champion L.A. Kings and the 2014 Major League Soccer champion L.A. Galaxy at the White House today and took a moment to give Robbie Rogers a shout-out! #blush.
“I want to recognize what Robbie Rogers of the Galaxy has done for a lot of people by blazing a trail as one of professional sports’ first openly gay players. My guess is that as an athlete Robbie wants to win, first and foremost. That’s what competition is all about. But Robbie, you’ve also inspired a whole lot of folks here and around the world and we’re very proud of you.”
Robbie Rogers reacts after President Barack Obama singled him out at the club’s visit to the White House.
