The 2013 Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens took to the streets of Washington D.C., on Wednesday.

The Ravens were honored by President Obama for their 34-31 win over the San Francisco 49ers on February 3, 2013, at the Super Dome in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Baltimore team members presented President Obama with a commemorative jersey with the number 44 and "Mr. President" on the back.

It was the second Super Bowl win for former Ravens linebacker and team leader, Ray Lewis, who announced his retirement earlier this year.

Baltimore quarterback, Joe Flacco, was named Super Bowl MVP and had the privilege of shouting those infamous five words, "I'm going to Disney World!"

The Ravens won the Super Bowl after taking a safety on their final possession of the game then punting to the 49ers. The 49ers were unable to convert the return giving San Francisco its first Super Bowl loss in its six appearances.

In addition to Lewis retiring this year, the Ravens also traded key players, defensive back Ed Reed, to the Houston Texans and wide reciever Anquan Boldin, to the 49ers.
