The White House welcomed the LA Galaxy soccer club for a special event in Washington DC this afternoon. David Beckham was among his teammates as they were honored by President Obama and First Lady Michelle for their successful 2011 season and MLS Cup win. Landon Donovan presented the president with a custom jersey after Obama spoke a few words. Obama joked of David, "It is a rare man who can be that tough on the field and also have his own line of underwear." Later, the players participated in a question and answer section for Michelle's "Let's Move" campaign. David is in the nation's capital with the rest of the team after they traveled to Canada last week for a Saturday match against the Montreal Impact that resulted in a tie.
