Super Bowl Frenzy: Mayor Barrett Watches Super Bowl With President
By Jay Sorgi and the Associated Press
Next game: February 6th at Super Bowl XLV vs. Pittsburgh
MILWAUKEE - Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett and his son will be watching the Super Bowl on Sunday at the White House.
According to a news release from Barrett's office, President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama invited the Democrat and his son Tommy and they accepted.
Barrett says it will be particularly satisfying to watch the Packers win with "the Bear's Fan-in-Chief."
"I got an e-mail on Saturday, for me and a guest to come, and my first reaction was 'Am I supposed to bring a six-pack?" the Mayor told TODAY'S TMJ4.
"My wife was kind enough to say 'Why don't you bring your son?' so my 18-year-old son will fly out there Sunday morning, not at taxpayers' expense."
Barrett plans to bring Usinger's Famous Sausage "Touchdown Box" and a Klement's Sausage Gourmet Gift Package as gifts.
Milwaukee's first Packers fan predicts a 27-21 Packers victory.
