Obama Calls It Right

UNITED States president Barack Obama predicted the Pittsburgh Steelers would win the Super Bowl and they proved him right.

Obama, who talked football during an interview with Matt Lauer on broadcaster NBC's pregame show on Sunday, didn't predict a score, but said, "I think the Steelers are going to eek it out in the end."

That's just what happened.

Obama conceded earlier in the week that he was pulling for Pittsburgh. Steelers owner Dan Rooney, a longtime Republican, endorsed Obama's presidential bid and campaigned for him.

Obama also had some praise for the Cardinals.

"I love Kurt Warner's story; I love Larry Fitzgerald ?? seems like a wonderful young man," he said. "It's a great story but Rooney didn't just endorse me, that guy was out at going to steel plants campaigning for me. Franco Harris was out waving towels at my rallies."
