The Obama family sure likes to fire up those Florida fans when they visit Gainesville and surrounding cities. And they know the best way to do it — the Gator Chomp.

Last Sunday, President Barack Obama made an impromptu stop at Gators Dockside Grill and Bar in the Dr. Phillips area of southwest Orange County and did the Gator Chomp with fans.

And on Monday, Michelle Obama did the Gator Chomp while speaking on the University of Florida campus. As you can imagine, it received quite the reception.

The Obama's are big sports fans, but they also know how important the state of Florida is to the upcoming election. Earning a little goodwill while doing the official, um, chomp of the state of Florida is a good way to drum up some support.

Unfortunately, the rest of the SEC — and Florida State, Miami, USF, FIU and FAU fans — might not be so keen on the demonstration.
