The White House Correspondents’ Dinner, the annual schmoozefest that’s big inside the Beltway, is Saturday night and it will draw a fairly stellar group of athletes, including one who gobbled up headlines during the NFL playoffs.
Richard Sherman, he of the NFC championship game rant that triggered a national debate, will attend the nerd prom along with his girlfriend as a guest of the Huffington Post.
Tony Romo, the Dallas Cowboys quarterback, will attend as a guest of Fox.
Other athletes who will make the scene include:
