Coughlin goes to White House and Belmont

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Tom Coughlin and the Giants will visit President Obama and the White House today as all Super Bowl champions do.

ESPNNewYork.com will be there and I'll try to tweet as much as I can and blog after the ceremony, which is scheduled for 2:50 p.m. Here’s a direct link to the coverage on ESPN3.

It's quite the weekend for the coach. Not only does Coughlin -- who recently received the Outstanding Civilian Service Award from the U.S. Army (third-highest public service honor given to a civilian) -- meet the President but he will also call "riders up" at the Belmont Stakes on Saturday.

"I am looking forward to being a very small part of one of New York’s and this country’s great sporting events," Coughlin said. He will be attending the race with his two sons, Brian and Tim, and son in-law, Chris Snee.
