Jennifer Lopez, two United States senators and a gift basket full of Milwaukee sausage will be in attendance at the White House on Sunday watching the Super Bowl with President Barack Obama.
Jennifer Lopez, two U.S. senators to watch Super Bowl with Obama
The White House announced its Super Bowl party guest list and it includes over 100 people, ranging from pop stars to a bipartisan group of government officials to people who sit next to Steven Tyler on "American Idol."
Among the announced attendees:
• Jennifer Lopez and husband Marc Anthony
• Attorney General Eric Holder
• Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano
• Senator Pat Toomey (R-Pa.)
• Senator Robert Casey, Jr. (D-Pa.)
• Congressman Reid Ribble (R-Wisc.)
• Former Wisconsin Governor Jim Doyle
• Madison Mayor Dave Cieslewicz (D)
• Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett (D)
In a news release, Barrett said he and his teenage son, Tommy, will bring gift baskets from Milwaukee sausage companies. "The fact that I will be watching the Packers win the Super Bowl with the Bears' 'Fan-in-Chief' is particularly satisfying," the mayor said in a statement.
Obama will welcome the guests after sitting for a live interview with FOX News' Bill O'Reilly, which will air during the Super Bowl pregame show at 4:45 p.m. ET. With his typical bravado, O'Reilly claims the interview will be seen by more people than "any other interview that's ever been done in the history of mankind."
Lopez told the television show "Extra" that she wasn't sure why she nabbed an invite to watch the game with the president. "I don't know," she said, "maybe that's why I don't want to talk about it. I don't even feel like it's real."
