The Super Bowl is right around the corner and Barack Obama is throwing a Super Bowl Party and rooting for the Packers, even though he prides himself as a Bears fan. Among his guest list are the mayor of Milwaukee, Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony.

The guest list for President Barack Obama’s White House Super Bowl party includes entertainers Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony as well as elected leaders from Wisconsin and Pennsylvania.

A White House spokesman says about 100 people will be there.

Others expected to attend are Attorney General Eric Holder, Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano and Sens. Pat Toomey and Robert Casey Jr. of Pennsylvania and congressman Reid Ribble of Wisconsin.

Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett is also invited. Obama is a Chicago Bears fan and in a statement Barrett says it will be satisfying to watch the Packers win with “the Bears’ fan in chief.”

The Packers beat the Bears in the NFC Championship game. They face the Pittsburgh Steelers for the NFL title Sunday.
