Barack Obama Picks Bears Over Packers
According to White House spokesman Matt Lehrich, Obama is predicting the Bears to beat the Packers in the NFC championship game this weekend, 20-17. Obama thinks "the crowd and venue of Soldier Field" will be the difference for the Bears.
Obama, of course, cites Chicago as his hometown. Obama didn't show up during the Chicago Blackhawks' run to the Stanley Cup championship last year, but he did call to congratulate the team afterward.
