WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama's beloved Chicago Bears won't be going to the Super Bowl, but the president will be partying anyway.
Obama is inviting some 100 people to the White House tomorrow, including lawmakers from both parties and the husband and wife part-owners of the Miami Dolphins -- singers Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony.
The Bears lost to the Green Bay Packers in the NFC championship game, so when the Packers fight it out with the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday night, the president says he'll remain neutral, even though the Packers are the Bears' archrivals.
And Obama is keeping with tradition. Fox is televising the game, so he's sitting down with Fox's Bill O'Reilly for a live interview tomorrow afternoon. Last year when CBS aired the game, Obama sat down with Katie Couric, and the year before that, with NBC's Matt Lauer when the peacock broadcast the battle.
