The Broncos' White House visit will make you re-watch the 2015 Patriots one

The Broncos were honored for their Super Bowl victory at the White House yesterday, and it'll make you want to watch the 2015 speech with the Patriots again.

After the Patriots blew it on a 2-point conversion that would have sent them to overtime in the AFC Championship Game against the Denver Broncos, New England packed their bags and went home, while the Broncos went on to win the 2016 Super Bowl championship.

And as the defending world champions, the Broncos went on a business trip to the White House, where the President of the United States of America gave them the props they deserve for winning the Super Bowl.

Let's be serious, Obama gets some good digs in there, as he usually does - whether it's busting Vonn Miller's balls for his ridiculous taste in eyewear, Peyton Manning's audibles, or subtly hinting that the '85 Bears defense was better than Denver's defense in 2015-2016, the man has a way with sports jokes.

So what is the natural reaction to watching this video, where Tom Brady's arch-nemesis Peyton Manning gets to sit right over the President's shoulder and smile? What does it make you want to do?

Watch the Patriots' 2014 Super Bowl White House video again, of course.

Let's be honest, there are some really good digs in here, too.

He jokes about accidentally hiring too many Patriots fans to work in the White House! (Probably not a coincidence, given that Massachusetts has the best public education systems in the country, according to the Washington Post).

Obama thanks Bill Belichick for "...deciding to dress up today", sneaks an "11 out of 12" DeflateGate two-for-one joke in there, tells Gronk to "Keep his shirt on", shouts out unsung heroes Jamie Collins, Shane Vereen, Rob Ninkovich, and of course, gives props to " small you can't see him!" cornerback Malcolm Butler.

Not only that, but Obama also shouted out the Patriots and their volunteer efforts, stating "...And, the good news is, they're leading the way off the field as well...during the season, Patriots players spend their Tuesdays volunteering in the community...visiting schools, hospitals, getting kids active through the NFL's Play 60 initiative..."

Oh, and then B.O. shouted out one of the Patriots team docs that's also a 20-year man from the Navy.  Can't get much more baller than that.

Gosh, if the Patriots are already favored to win the Super Bowl in 2017, how fired up does that get you? Fired up enough to jump through a table?  Good, see you outside.

Also, don't actually jump through a table, it hurts, really badly.
