Epicenter of Humanity: Obama watching
By Kevin Seifert
As you’ve probably heard by now, President Barack Obama said Wednesday he plans to attend Super Bowl XLV if his hometown Chicago Bears are playing in it.
According to NFL spokesman Greg Aiello, Obama would be the first sitting president to watch a Super Bowl in person.
Here's a thought: Maybe at halftime he can pull NFL commissioner Roger Goodell and Players Association executive director DeMaurice Smith into a side room and negotiate a new collective bargaining agreement. Halftime at the Super Bowl is twice as long as a normal game, after all.
