Obama Throws Super Bowl Party at the White House

This Super Bowl Sunday, Washington politicians are heading to the White House to talk smack... not about unemployment or health care, silly, about the big game!

For the second year in a row, President and Mrs. Obama will be hosting a Super Bowl party at their digs and they've invited a handful of members of Congress and their families to join them.

The Colts will be well-represented, with Indiana Congressmen Andre Carson, Brad Ellsworth, and Baron Hill RSVP-ing "yes". But the sixth district's Mike Pence decided the better of his two invites was the one to see the game in-person in sunny Miami.
Some participants are not shying away from their loyalties.

"New Orleans is one of our nation's most unique and beautiful cities, and the Saint's Super Bowl run is a great story," Rep. Carson, an avid Colts fan, admitted.

"I hope they get a title someday- just not this year and not against my hometown team."

Row 2, Seat 4 tried mightily to get you the scoop on menu details, but you'll just have to wait until Sunday. Stay tuned!!
