Athletes attend the White House Correspondents Dinner

The White House Correspondents’ Association held their Centennial dinner on Saturday, May 3, 2014. Joel McHale, star of the NBC series Community and host of E!’s The Soup is the headliner. Recently, the event has been dubbed a #nerdprom but celebs and reality stars have been making their appearances.




Athletes are typically in attendance given their celebrity. This year we had appearances from Super Bowl Champs Richard Sherman and Russell Wilson. You had NBA great Kareem Abdul Jabar. Superman Cam Newton.  Tony Romo. It’s great to see athletes attend event outside of sports. It allows them to network with a new group of people. Plus being that this is a press event they maybe able to make good press contacts.
