New Orleans Saints get champions ‘welcome’ from President Obama

There was a shout of “Who Dat” as the celebration at the White House got started on Monday as President Barack Obama saluted the Super Bowl champion New Orleans Saints.

The band played “When the Saints Go Marching In”.

Obama congratulated the team, owner Tom Benson and assistant coaches in the East Room. He said the team lifted up ‘the hopes and the dreams of a shattered city’ in the wake of Hurricane Katrina’s destruction.

New Orleans beat the Indianapolis Colts, 31-17 in Super Bowl XLIV in Miami, Florida.

Saints QB Drew Brees presented the 44th president of the nation with a Number 44 New Orleans jersey. The Chicago Bears fan said jokingly that he couldn’t get away wearing the jersey in the Windy City.

New Orleans coach Sean Payton is also from Chicago and agreed with the president.

78 wins in a row and a National title for the Connecticut women’s team

The NCAA women’s national championship game in San Antonio, Texas on Tuesday night was being played by two of the best in the game, Stanford and Connecticut.

The halftime score was 20-12 Stanford. Yes, you’ve seen it 20-12. The Huskies missed 18 straight shots, from layups to 3-pointers and missed free throws. The Connecticut women went 10 minutes, 37 seconds between points.

Huskies star Maya Moore took control of the game.

Moore scored 11 points during a 17-2 run to start the second half of the national championship game, a key point in the game that put the Huskies back in control and on their way to a 53-47 win over the Stanford Cardinal on Tuesday night. Maya Moore finished with 23 points and 11 rebounds. Tina Charles added nine points, 11 rebounds and 6 blocks.

The win, their record-stretching 78th straight, capped a two-year run in women’s college basketball history, going undefeated from start to finish.

Connecticut finished the season the way as they did last season: 39-0 and National champions. Associated Press player of the year Tina Charles reminded everyone during the trophy ceremony, as she sent a message to the White House, “tell President Obama, we’re Baaaaaaaaaaack’.

UConn’s unbeaten streak is moving into sacred territory. If they can start the 2010-2011 season at 11-0, the Lady Huskies would top the 88-game streak by John Wooden’s UCLA men in the early1970′s.

Auriemma won his seventh national title in a 25 year career. That puts him one behind Tennessee’s Pat Summitt for most titles among women’s coaches.

The Stanford Cardinal,  who finishes the season at 36-2, was the last team to beat UConn, exactly two years before, at the 2008 Final Four. In the last 15 months, Stanford has beaten everyone its faced except Connecticut. This was the their third straight loss.

They met earlier this season on December 23, 2009 in Storrs, Connecticut. Stanford led at the halftime, but lost by 12. It was the closest that anyone has ever been to beating the Huskies all season long.

Stanford center Jayne Appel closed her career with a game she will soon forget, going 0 for 12 from the floor and failing sore from the field.

Kayla Pederson led the Cardinal with 15 points and 17 rebounds.

The game in San Antonio was played before a crowd of 22,936 that included Vice President Joe Biden as well as former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.
