Mike Pence Will Be Replaced By This Famous Face at National Prayer Breakfast
It has been quite the hectic week for star quarterback Carson Wentz, and it looks like it just got even more exciting.
After the Eagles took home the Lombardi trophy at the weekend, Wentz announced his engagement to long-term girlfriend Madison Oberg. Here's the third piece of the trifecta: Wentz is reportedly replacing Vice President Mike Pence as the keynote speaker for the National Prayer Breakfast, taking place Thursday in Washington D.C.
Pence is otherwise engaged, attending the Winter Olympics opening ceremony in South Korea. Wentz will reportedly be participating in the Eagles Super Bowl parade in Philadelphia around 11:00 am Thursday morning before heading to D.C. for the prayer dinner. Traditionally, the president speaks at the event, followed by a mystery guest. Previous speakers have included Mother Theresa, Bono and former British Prime Minister Tony Blair.
