President Obama tells Crimson Tide to call him ‘O-Bama’ during visit

The Alabama Crimson Tide are having a ton of fun in Washington D.C. during their visit to the White House today. The 2016 College Football Playoff champions headed up the East Coast to visit with President Barack Obama on Wednesday.

During the team’s visit, President Obama joked around with some of the players during his speech. He talked about how many times Nick Saban’s club has visited him during his tenure and even gave himself a nickname exclusive to the Crimson Tide.

Obama: "This is the fourth time I've hosted Alabama at the White House. I guess you could say I've brought you good luck."

It’s nice to see that even after eight years of stress running the United States, President Obama has a pretty good sense of humor. Too bad whoever is in house next likely won’t be as funny.

You can watch Obama’s entire speech below and it is full of fun for everyone in attendance.

Let’s see how the next eight years stack up to Obama’s run with the teams that visit the White House.
