Barack Obama made his final Super Bowl prediction as president this week, picking the New England Patriots to face the Seattle Seahawks in a rematch of the 2015 game.
“At this point you would have to put your money on (Tom) Brady again,” Obama said Friday on SiriusXM’s “Sway in the Morning” show. “I don’t see any real strong teams. Seattle and Patriots have a rematch, that’s my call.”
Obama didn’t pick a winner, or predict whether the Seahawks would pass or run from the 1, but it was more interesting than his pick for NBA champion.
“I am going to go with the Warriors just because (Kevin) Durant, that addition, I think they’ve got too much firepower,” Obama said, “although they just got spanked on their first game. So it will take them a while to figure things out.”
No Cubs endorsement? Guess the White Sox fan doesn’t want to be remembered as the president who jinxed the Cubbies.
