Obama Picking Hometown Bears To Win NFC

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama is predicting that his hometown Chicago Bears will defeat their rivals, the Green Bay Packers, 20-17 in Sunday’s NFC championship game.

But White House spokesman Robert Gibbs says Obama won’t hold a grudge against the state of Wisconsin should the Packers pull off a win. Gibbs says Obama will travel to Manitowoc, Wis., on Wednesday, regardless of the outcome.

Obama set off speculation this week that he would attend the Super Bowl if the Bears make it in. After being asked about his plans for the big game, Obama said with a laugh: “Oh, if the Bears are in the Super Bowl, we’re going.”

Gibbs tried to back away from that, saying that as a superstitious fan, it was too soon to be making Super Bowl plans.

    I think he has more to worry about then who is going to win the football game. Soon he’ll be watching football from his house, not the White house.
