The Utah Jazz travelled last night from Milwaukee (after the drubbing they took from their Bucks) to Washington D.C., and had a full off-day in the Capitol before their game against the Washington Wizards. The team support staff do a good job of maintaining good schedules and for planning team building events during the course of the season. We've seen them at the Oklahoma City Bombing memorial before, and countless other places during their trips around the country. Today they got a chance to visit the White House and several other D.C. locations.
Here is a sampling of some of the pictures, messages, and tweets from today:

Never would have thought the game of basketball would have allowed me to walk the halls of the White House. #blessed— Johnnie Bryant (@jbryant3) March 4, 2014
Regardless of anyone's political leanings, truly an honor and a humbling experience to visit the White House. pic.twitter.com/pdpe1zLvza— Jonathan Rinehart (@jonrinehart) March 4, 2014

And yes, Marvin Williams just found a clue and currently has the Declaration of Independence in his pants.
Brandon Rush, Diante Garrett, and Trey Burke in D.C., but this really could be anywhere.
