Harrison's motives don't appear be to political and he also skipped the Steelers' visit after Pittsburgh's 2006 Super Bowl win."If you want to see the Pittsburgh Steelers, invite us when we don't win the Super Bowl," he told Pittsburgh's WTAE-TV. "So as far as I'm concerned he would have invited Arizona if they had won."
Personally, I wouldn't care who the president is or if I saw eye-to-eye with him politically. The chance to be honored at the White House is an opportunity most people will never get to experience.
But, let's be honest about this glorified photo-op. It's the same with every team. They show up, give the prez a novelty jersey, shake a few hands and then get out of there. It's not exactly a life-altering afternoon for a professional athlete who has already won the world championship.
So, what do you make of Harrison's decision to skip the trip?
