The newest sports fan at the White House isn’t afraid to pick sides in Sunday’s Super Bowl. And like many Americans, he’s having a few people over to watch the big game.
President Barack Obama says he’ll be rooting for the PIttsburgh Steelers to win, although he joked that Kurt Warner – the 37-year-old quarterback for the Arizona Cardinals and a former Super Bowl MVP — was closer to his age than anybody else who’ll be playing on the field.
“I wish the best to the Cardinals. They’ve been long-suffering; it’s a great Cinderella story,” Obama said of the Cardinals, who peaked in the post-season and stunned many by making it to their first Super Bowl.
“But other than the Bears, the Steelers are probably the team that’s closest to my heart.”
