With the Democratic Convention taking place this week, here's an NFL-related political flashback. Remember Barack Obama's special announcement prior to the Chicago Bears-St Louis Rams game on Monday Night Football back in December of 2006? In fact, Obama's communications staff sent out an announcement that said Obama would be commenting "about an upcoming contest of great importance to the American people." For the record, the Bears defeated the Rams 42-27. The Bears later lost in the Super Bowl to the Indianapolis Colts.
