Sure, you've got chips and pizza. They've got J.Lo.
Sure, you've got craft beer. They've got brew straight from Green Bay.
Sure, you've got a few buddies coming over. They've invited 100, including Attorney General Eric Holder, Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, Sens. Pat Toomey and Robert Casey Jr. of Pennsylvania, and Rep. Reid Ribble of Wisconsin, the Associated Press reported. Former Wisconsin Gov. Jim Doyle, Madison Mayor Dave Cieslewicz and Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett were also expected. Barrett said he and his 18-year-old son, Tommy, will bring gift baskets made by Milwaukee companies Usinger’s Sausage and Klement’s Sausage.
Yep, it's safe to say the Obamas' Super Bowl party will likely be a whole lot cooler than yours. And it's also pretty darn clear which team the residents of the White House are pulling for. NBC26.com of Green Bay, Wisc., reports:
The White House ordered Pale Ale and Amber Ale, two beers [the brewers] believe will represent Green Bay at the White House. Right now, Hinterland beer is just distributed in Wisconsin, making this the first time the company has shipped a large order like this to Washington D.C.... "From time to time we get a lot of celebrities that come into the restaurant and that's always fun, but this kind of brings it to a whole new level," says Hinterland owner Bill Tressler.
And what was that about J.Lo? Yep, a White House aide has confirmed that Jennifer Lopez and her husband, R&B singer Marc Anthony, will be attending, according to Politico:
"I can't believe it!" she said. "I don't know, maybe that's why I don't want to talk about it. I don't even feel like it's real!"
And for all the doubters out there (and perhaps in a nod to the Salahis), she added, "No, we're not crashing."
So... we guess it would be in poor taste for us to crash, huh?
