Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford is hopeful one day he and his teammates will be invited to the White House to celebrate with the President as Super Bowl champions.

If and when that day ever comes, Stafford isn't likely to be as in awe of his surroundings as his teammates might be. That’s because Stafford will be at the White House and the Pentagon on Thursday in order to tout the benefits of a new football-related video game, entitled "Financial Football."

Visa and the NFL have teamed up to help teach financial concepts with "Financial Football", a fast-paced, interactive game that engages students while teaching them money management skills. Teams compete by answering financial questions to earn yardage and score touchdowns.

Stafford, along with Rep. Gary Peters of Bloomfield Township, who is a member of the House Financial Services Committee, will demonstrate the beneficial aspects of the game at both the White House and the Pentagon.

Stafford's involvement comes during the White House's first-ever Summit on Financial Capability & Empowerment. Stafford seems to be perfect spokesman for a money management game. He signed a six-year $72 million rookie contract with the Lions in 2009 with $41.8 million guaranteed.

Stafford is coming off a 2011 season in which he threw for 5,038 yards and 41 touchdowns, leading the Lions to their first playoff appearance since 1999.
