First, dancing with Prince. Now, congratulations from the president.

The Minnesota Lynx surely must be enjoying the aftermath of winning another WNBA Championship, which they did Wednesday night with a 69-52 victory over the Indiana Fever.

On Thursday, the Lynx got a phone call from President Barack Obama, in which the noted basketball fan asked if the winners of three of the last five league titles were "going to get tired of doing this." He also complimented the Lynx on their style of play, for "operating the way that basketball is supposed to be played" and triumphing despite an off night from star Maya Moore.

President Obama then invited the team to the White House for a congratulatory ceremony.
