On Wednesday night, the President called Dempsey and Howard from the Oval Office to congratulate them on their fantastic performance in the Belgium game and the entire World Cup.

President Obama said the guys “did us proud” and that they “captured the hearts and minds” of the country.

The President also went out of his way to joke with Howard – that he might have to shave his bear to “survive the mobs when you come back”.
