WASHINGTON (WUSA9) -- It was a beautiful day on the south lawn of the White House.

The Baltimore Ravens made the journey from Charm City to DC to take part in the annual tradition bestowed upon the Super Bowl Champs. 

The players, coaches and employees took a tour of the East Wing and spent some private time with President Obama.

In front of the teams family and friends, President Obama not only reminisced about the Ravens wild super bowl run but took a few light-hearted jabs as well at the expense of Jacoby Jones, Joe Flacco, Ray Lewis and Ed Reed.

The President became an honorary Raven, receiving his own Baltimore Jersey with the number 44 and Mr. President written across the top.

However, he stayed true to his life long allegiance to the Chicago Bears, whom the Ravens will play week 11.

But coach Harbaugh countered with a challenge of his own, saying they plan on returning to the White House again next season as Super bowl Champs.

Ray Lewis, Ed Reed, Dannell Ellerbe and Brendon Ayanbadejo rejoined their former team mates for the event, but guys like Paul Kruger, Cary Williams, Bernard Pollard and Anquan Boldin didn't make the trip.
