WASHINGTON | President Barack Obama is promising he’ll be at the Super Bowl if his beloved hometown Chicago Bears make it in.

It’s not clear, though, that his off-the-cuff comment represented a firm commitment — or just a lighthearted moment in a busy day.

The Bears would win a Super Bowl slot if they beat the Green Bay Packers Sunday.

Obama was asked about his plans Wednesday by reporters being ushered out of his Oval Office meeting with the president of China.

Obama said laughingly: “Oh, if the Bears are in the Super Bowl, we’re going.”

The Super Bowl is Feb. 6 at the Dallas Cowboys’ new stadium in Texas.
