The Chicago Bears get bragging rights because Commander-in-Chief is a fan of their team.
He's been spotted wearing a Bears hat, and invited the 1985 Super Bowl team to the White House. When he was still Senator Obama, he recorded an opening to Monday Night Football to end any questions on his football fandom.
His love for the Bears was put on full display during a stop in New Jersey on Tuesday. Obama and New Jersey governor Chris Christie toured the Jersey Shore to check in on th areas destroyed by Hurricane Sandy. They stopped by a booth to play the game where you try to throw a football through a tire. Christie won a prize, and handed over the Chicago Bears teddy bear to the president.
The only bad part of this story is that Obama tried and missed (five times), while Christie got it through the tire on the first try. When his time in the White House is up, the president can get some coaching from Bears head coach and quarterback guru Marc Trestman.
Thanks, For the Win.
