| No Comments

WASHINGTON--President Obama predicted the Bears will beat the Packers and even offered a score: 20 for Chicago to 17 for Green Bay, according to the White House.

The difference in the game, a White House source said will be the crowds and the Bears playing home at Soldier Field.

The Superbowl is Feb. 6 in Dallas and Obama if the Bears are in, he will go to the game.
He was asked about football's biggest game and his hometown football team at the end of his meeting with China's president, Hu Jintao.

"Oh, if the Bears are in the Super Bowl, we're going," Obama said.
