WASHINGTON - The Super Bowl champion Green Bay Packers made their long-anticipated visit to the White House Friday afternoon.
They were greeted by President Barack Obama who is a Chicago Bears fan.
"The Packers are made of more than just one season. They're made of the people of Green Bay," said Obama "Even a Bears fan can admit… the relationship between the Green Bay Packers and their fans is special."
The president also mentioned how relieved he was that the NFL lockout was over and how much he was looking forward to the Packers-Bears games this season.
Talking about Super Bowl XLV, Obama said, "The defense was flying around like Clay Matthews' hair."
President Obama gave a special shout out to Charles Woodson.
When the president visited Wisconsin in January to give a speech on the economy, he was given a Packers jersey signed by Woodson with the message, "See you at the White House. Go Packers."
During the Rose Garden ceremony, Woodson presented the president with a share of Green Bay Packers stock.
"It hurts us a little to give this to you as well," said Woodson.
The president responded by saying he would use his new power to trade quarterback Aaron Rodgers to the Bears.
The president went on to shake the hands of the players and coaches.
