During the 1972 Season, the Miami Dolphins won 17 straight games (including the Super Bowl) and are still the ONLY perfect team in NFL history. Its been 40 years since that monumental season and within that time, the feat has gone without any White House acknowledgement. Back on January 14, 1973 when the Dolphins beat the Redskins 14-7, saluting winning sports teams wasn’t much of a tradition for the White House (then being run by Richard Nixon).
But later today, the President and his staff will try to correct history and host members of the perfect season team and then-coach Don Shula. Photos and video will soon follow.
