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.
