Louisville guard Kevin Ware has been invited to the annual White House Correspondents' Dinner by CNN.
If someone came to me right now with a fully functional time machine, I wouldn't go back to right any past wrongs or try to meet Jesus, I would show January 2013 Mike Rutherford the first line of this post just to see his reaction. He...he would be surprised.
Anyway, Ware has agreed to attend the event, which will take place on the evening of April 27. He'll also be back at the White House at a later date when the entire championship team is honored.
Kevin Ware, the guy who was "not coming back anytime soon" on Jan. 29, has now done the top ten on Letterman, been mentioned in a Jay-Z song, has been referred to as a "national inspiration," and has been invited to the White House Correspondents' Dinner.
There have been better rags to riches stories, but I don't think any of those have taken place over the course of two and-a-half months.
