One of the many perks of winning a championship is getting to meet the president and visiting the White House. It’s the Kings’ turn Monday after winning the Stanley Cup last June. Actually, they’re there with the MLS Cup champion Galaxy, their AEG brethren.

The whole thing will take 15 minutes or so.
We’ll have the transcript here later.
