WASHINGTON, D.C. - The Packers victory was especially wonderful for the mayor of Packers' nation's biggest city, who celebrated with his son...and the nation's biggest Bears fan.

"It was very sweet.  It couldn't have been more exciting," said Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett, who watched the Packers' 31-25 win over the Steelers in Super Bowl XLV at the White House with his son and President Obama, on TODAY'S TMJ4's Live at Daybreak.

"I was there with my son.  There were a lot of Steelers fans.  We had to be extra loud and extra exuberant in our cheering, but it was a great, great victory."

What was the big moment?

"It was very near the end of the game.  There were two minutes left.  He sat down right next to my son, and he said, 'I'm neutral!  I'm neutral!  I'm neutral!'  We just sat there and smiled, and that's when the Packers put it away.  Watching the President sit next to my son with less than two minutes to play in a winning Super Bowl with the Green Bay Packers was an unforgettable moment."
