WASHINGTON - Predictions are coming from left and right when it comes to Super Bowl, but there doesn't seem to be one from the First Fan.

President Barack Obama made no secret that he wanted the Chicago Bears to defeat the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship Game, and he stated he would go to Super Bowl XLV if the Bears went, but will not be going since the Packers defeated Chicago.

In a YouTube interview, the President was asked which team he is cheering for.

"Now that the Bears have lost, I've got to stay neutral," admitted the President.

"I already took a hard time from Charles Woodson."

The Packers defensive back talked to his teammates after the game.

"The President don't want to come and watch us in the Super Bowl?  Guess what?  We'll go see him!" to the cheers of his team.  "White House on three!  One!  Two!  Three!  White House!"

He then signed a jersey for the President saying "See you at the White House," which was given to Mr. Obama at Green Bay's airport on Wednesday.

The President also picked Steelers President Dan Rooney to be the ambassador to Ireland two years ago.
