Barack Obama only has a few months left as President of the United States so he’s ticking a few things off his to-do list. On Friday, Obama appeared on Sirius XM’s “Sway in the Morning” show and made the final Super Bowl prediction of his presidency:
“At this point you would have to put your money on (Tom) Brady again. I don’t see any real strong teams. Seattle and Patriots have a rematch, that’s my call.”
While he didn’t pick a winner, the president made a pretty solid prediction, as long as the Seahawks get their offense sorted out. The Patriots look fantastic right now at 6-1 and Seattle is 4-1-1. Both squads are among the best in the league and could, indeed, be headed for a rematch at Super Bowl LI.
Obama also made an NBA championship call:
“I’m going with the Warriors just because (Kevin) Durant, that addition, I think they’ve got too much firepower. Although they just got spanked on their first game. So it will take them a while to figure things out.”
That’s an incredibly safe pick, but I appreciate the effort.
