As has become tradition, President Barack Obama took part in a pre-game interview ahead of Super Bowl 49 tonight (Sun., Feb. 1, 2015) at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona. This year, the game will be broadcast by NBC, so that's who got to grill him with questions ranging from who is going to win tonight's game to politics to beer.
We'll ignore the political stuff.
Here's what he had to say about tonight's game:
"Since my Bears are not in it, I think it's always wise for me not to choose a team because then I just alienate one big city. But I will say that it's going to be close. The question I have is whether Seattle's secondary is healthy enough. That's the heart and soul of their team. They've got three guys back there who are hurt. I don't know how that's going to affect the game."
He also addressed the Deflategate scandal, remarking that New England was going to beat Indianapolis regardless of the footballs in play but if cheating occurred it should be punished.
And now he returns to his duties as President while dealing with the fact that the Chicago Bears are still employing Jay Cutler at quarterback.
Be sure to keep it locked here all Sunday afternoon because we will have complete Patriots vs. Seahawks results, including quarter-by-quarter, play-by-play updates, from kickoff to final whistle.
