As White House visits by Super Bowl champions go, the one Monday by the New Orleans Saints was uneventful.
President Obama spoke about how the Saints helped lift the spirits of New Orleans, made some canned remarks about Sean Payton's bold post-halftime onsides kick, and received a No. 44 jersey from Drew Brees(notes). Pretty routine stuff, except for the haircut of starting defensive tackle Remi Ayodele(notes):
It's not every day you see a man wearing a thousand dollar-plus suit sporting a spiky mohawk in front of the leader of the free world. I'm pretty impressed.
For the record, I'm not entirely sure Ayodele's hair is the topic of conversation in this picture. Judging by where Obama is pointing and the reactions of everyone in the picture, I think he's comparing his own gray hair to that of Pierson Prioleau(notes) (at least I think that's the safety standing first row, right).
If that's the case, I'm not sure at what Ayodele is laughing. At least Prioleau's hair will age gracefully. When Remi goes gray, he's going to look like Don King.
