Penguins won't turn down White House invite

The Penguins Stanley Cup victory hasnt earned them an invitation to the White House. Not yet, anyway.

But if one comes, they will accept it.

The Pittsburgh Penguins would never turn down a visit to the White House and, if invited, we would go as a team, team CEO/president David Morehouse said Tuesday in a prepared statement.

The interesting twist is that several members of the teams hierarchy are staunch progressives.

Owner Ron Burkle is a major donor to Democratic causes, and Morehouse worked in the Clinton administration and on Al Gores 2000 presidential campaign.

Regardless, Morehouse said those political leanings would have no impact on the teams willingness to go to the White House.
