While live on GMA Day, co-host Michael Strahan invited the championship winning team to a dinner in New York City, and said he would even pay for the upscale meal out of his own pocket. “I would like to invite the Clemson Tiger football team here for a great meal,” Strahan, who played for the New York Giants, said on Tuesday. “Whoever can make it, we’ll hook you up with lobster. Whatever you want, we’re going to take care of you,” Strahan added. “We’re going to give you the proper meal that you deserve because that was one great game, a great accomplishment.” Susan Walsh/AP/REX/Shutterstock Strahan’s promise came the morning after President Donald Trump bought the football team a fast food feast during their visit to the White House to celebrate the team’s national championship win.

We don’t have a lot of money here.” “It’s out of my pocket, I got you guys, I got it. Out of my pocket … I’ll pay for it, no problem,” Strahan answered. “… Those guys deserve it, congratulations to Clemson.” There’s no word on whether the team will take Strahan up on his offer.
