Five Times Obama was Fan in Chief
During Monday Broncos visit, president jokes kicker was offensive star

Pick just about any week President Barack Obama is in town, chances are he could be welcoming a championship sports team to the White House. Sure enough, Obama had the NFL Super Bowl champions,  the Denver Broncos,  over on Monday.  

As always on such occasions, Obama let his fandom show. He began the ceremony by mimicking now-retired Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning 's snap count. "Omaha! Omaha! 44 is mike," Obama said in a cadence and tone far less intense than Manning used on the field.

Sen. Bill Nelson, who has a history of issuing friendly wagers on Florida sports, found himself on the losing end Wednesday.

Nelson, 72, and Sen. Richard J. Durbin of Illinois wagered food and beer on the Stanley Cup Final between the Chicago Blackhawks and the Tampa Bay Lightning — but in addition to betting food, the losing senator was required to do pushups equaling the number of goals scored throughout the series.
