WASHINGTON, D.C. - The Super Bowl-winning Seattle Seahawks are headed to the White House for a historic visit with the president.

At a ceremony set for Wednesday at 11:10 a.m. Pacific time, President Obama will host the team and recognize their efforts to give back to the community.

And of course there just may be a mention of that 43-8 Super Bowl win over the Denver Broncos.

The Seahawks boarded buses at the VMAC facility in Renton on Tuesday afternoon for the trip to Sea-Tac Airport. As team members boarded a chartered plane, a massive banner loomed in the background reading "Go Hawks."

Along with meeting the president, Earl Thomas, Russell Wilson, Richard Sherman and others are scheduled to meet with First Lady Michelle Obama.

Wide receiver Doug Baldwin tweeted, "Michelle, here I come ... l-m-a-o."

Coach Pete Carroll tweeted, "everyone is excited ... we are very proud to represent the 12s in DC. Go Hawks."

Richard Sherman wrote, "excited to visit the White House with the whole team."

And quarterback Russell Wilson tweeted, "I can't wait to go to the White House with my amazing Seahawks teammates ... you get out what you put in."

Long snapper Clint Gresham posted a picture with the title "new haircut cuz I gotta look good at the White House."
