Obama Rooting for the Steelers

Today, IC posted my article on Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kurt Warner. His return to the Super Bowl is as unlikely as the Cardinals being in it.

Earlier this week, President Obama acknowledged Warner's comeback when asked about Super Bowl XLIII. "You know, Kurt Warner is a great story, and he's closer to my age than anybody else on the field. But I am a longtime Steelers fan."

A longtime Steelers fan? Really? I thought Obama was a diehard Chicago Bears fan.

Could it be that Obama is a "longtime Steelers fan" because Steelers owner Dan Rooney publicly endorsed him and presented him with a personalized Steelers jersey and was a major donor to his campaign? Could it also be that Obama is rooting for the Steelers because Cardinals owner Bill Bidwill is a longtime supporter of the Senator from his home state John McCain?

Go Cardinals. Go Kurt Warner.

My prediction for the final score: Cardinals 34 Steelers 28.

Warner 24/36, 4 TDs, 309 YDs, Super Bowl MVP.
