Obama said he’d attend a 
Chicago Bears Super Bowl

President Obama said Wednesday that he’d like to attend the Super Bowl if his Chicago Bears make it to the big game.

During brief remarks in the Oval Office, where he was hosting Chinese President Hu Jintao, Obama said, “If the Bears win, I’m going, no doubt.”

Tickets are hard to come by, however, and are going for $1,000 each. On second thought, he is the commander in chief and probably has some connections. (But you better pay for it, Mr. President. Remember, House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa is watching!)

The Bears will play the Green Bay Packers in Chicago this weekend, and the winner will face the New York Jets or Pittsburgh Steelers in the Feb. 6 Super Bowl in Dallas. 

During his first two years in office, Obama has only seen the Windy City’s baseball and basketball teams in action. The Chicago Blackhawks won professional hockey’s Stanley Cup last season, but the president didn’t attend any of those games.
