As is custom after any championship in American sports, the winning team makes a visit to the White House.

Most players are just content with hanging with the President (it is a huge honor, after all), but not Mr. Russdiculous. No, Louisville guard Russ Smith actually has a plan mapped out, and it includes getting the leader of the free world back to Brooklyn and to the fine-dining establishment that is Waffle House.

It’s not every day that a person gets to walk the White House corridors with Mr. President, so we can’t blame Smith for taking full advantage of the opportunity his hard work has brought to him.

As far as a “special invite to Waffle House” goes, we aren’t quite sure if you can put special and Waffle House in the same sentence. But then again, he is the national champion, maybe he knows something we don’t.
