Eagles Coach was 'Looking Forward' to White House Visit, LeBron James and Steph Curry Don't Want Invitation, Argentina Cancels Exhibition Match with Israel in Response to Protest and Delaware Legalizes Full-Scale Betting
Philadelphia Eagles coach Doug Pederson expressed disappointment at President Trump's cancellation of the team's planned White House visit yesterday. The Associated Press quotes Pederson:
"I was looking forward to going down, obviously," Pederson said Wednesday. "We did something last season that was very special, a milestone in the city of Philadelphia and for our organization. I was looking forward to being recognized as world champions. It is what it is."
The AP also reports that Stephen Curry and LeBron James would not be interested in a White House visit in response to the President's decision. Curry refused Trump's invitation last year when the Golden State Warriors won the NBA championship. LeBron James was unsurprised by the White House's move and expressed the lack of interest in attending even if invited.
"I'm not surprised. It's typical of him," James, the Cleveland star, said Tuesday of Trump's decision to cancel. "I know no matter who wins this series, no one wants the invite anyway. So it won't be Golden State or Cleveland going."
Argentina has cancelled a pre-World Cup warm-up game with Israel following political agitation, according to CNN. The report says Argentinian President Mauricio Macri describes Argentina's decision as being done "in solidarity" with superstar player Lionel Messi, who was singled out by Palestinian protesters.
Palestinian officials were outraged by the decision to hold the match in the contested city. On Sunday, Palestinian Football Association chief Jibril Rajoub launched a campaign against the Argentine Football Association (AFA) -- and specifically Messi -- and called on people to burn T-shirts of the soccer player.
Yesterday Delaware became the first state to legalize full-scale sports betting. NPR reports that state's Gov. John Carney was the first to make a bet, placing $10 on the Phillies game last night, who then beat the Cubs 6-1.
