Dolphins | Saban turns down Bush invitation
Armando Salguero, of the Miami Herald, reports Miami Dolphins head coach Nick Saban does not consider himself a political aficionado. He also understands a dinner invitation from the president of the United States is not something you say no to, unless of course if that request comes during training camp. That's the reason Saban had to politely decline an invitation to dine with President George Bush Sunday evening, July 30, while the President was in South Florida. "There's nobody in the world that has more respect for the President of the United States, what he does, what his responsibility is, what our support for what he does is, regardless of who is in that position," Saban said. "It was really a tough decision for us last night to stay here and work with our team and go to the meetings and do what we have to do in camp."
