Obama’s guessing the Bears win, 20-17, according to White House spokesman Matt Lehrich.
“The difference in the game: the crowd and venue of Soldier Field,” Lehrich quoted Obama as saying.
Seems reasonable enough. Home teams have won five of the last six NFC Championship games, and the Chicago crowd figures to be as rabid as it's ever been. President Obama also likes a low-scoring game, which would probably favor the Bears.
Should the Super Bowl come down to Jets vs. Bears, I'm going to have to root for the Jets. Only because I want to hear Bart Scott yell at President Obama.
