XLV: Obama says Bears will get revenge

By Kevin Seifert

You don't get to be President of the United States by rolling over at the first sign of adversity. So I guess we shouldn't be surprised that President Barack Obama -- a noted Chicago Bears fan -- had some tough talk for Green Bay Packers fans as he arrived in Wisconsin for an economic address.

"I'm glad to see that one of the greatest rivalries in sports is still there," Obama said. "And we will get you next year. I'm just letting you know."

Obama had predicted a 20-17 Bears victory in the NFC Championship Game. Wednesday, he said: "In the spirit of sportsmanship, I wish you 'good luck' in the Super Bowl."

Until next year, of course....
