Woodson signs jersey 'See you at the White House' for President Obama

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Green Bay Packers cornerback Charles Woodson says he got on President Barack Obama's bandwagon a few years ago. So as far as Woodson is concerned, there's no reason the world's best-known Chicago Bears fan can't back the rival Packers in the Super Bowl.

Obama was in Wisconsin to give a speech on the economy Wednesday, and was given a Packers jersey signed by Woodson with the message, "See you at the White House. Go Packers."

Obama would have attended the Super Bowl if his favorite team made it. Instead, the Packers beat the Bears on Sunday -- and presumably would visit the White House if they beat Pittsburgh in the Feb. 6 game.

Woodson says he voted for Obama, and believes the President should reciprocate by rooting for the Packers.
