President Biden welcomed the Vegas Golden Knights to the White House, highlighting Las Vegas as a top sports city and making an awkward divorce joke in the process.
Biden joked about the Philadelphia Eagles leaving, referencing his wife’s connection to the team.
“And together you’re building a legacy in a great American sports city. In fact, Kamala hosted the Las Vegas Aces back in September when they had just won back-to-back WNBA titles,” he said. (Trending: Court Hands Down Crucial 2nd Amendment Ruling)

“Just one promise: Don’t get the Philadelphia Eagles to leave and go… because I’ll get divorced if that happens. I married a Philly girl, and — and it’s a long story,” he said before cutting himself off and pausing.
“You’re proving Vegas sports is one of the best shows in town,” Biden said.
The team’s success and continuity were praised, with players expressing gratitude for the opportunity to meet the president.
“It makes days like today more enjoyable,” Jack Eichel stated. “It’s been a good start to our season. Obviously want to continue doing that, but, yeah, it’s a celebration of what we accomplished last year, and then we’re back to work.”
“Obviously, there’s a lot more important things on hand for him to do,” Alec Martinez said of Biden’s speech. “So, to take a little bit of time out of their day to allow us to have this experience is pretty special.”
“It was probably the most nervous I’ve ever been,” Mark Stone said of his speech following the President. “Speaking in Vegas (at the parade), I think I’d had a few drinks, so it was a little bit easier to do that one. But with the president standing a couple steps over, it was definitely pretty nerve-wracking.”
The Golden Knights’ strong start to the season was also noted.
