Can Obama Pass Bears Fan Quiz?

President Obama met the New Orleans Saints at the White House on Monday to congratulate them for their Super Bowl win last year.  It's pretty standard stuff.

We all know the Prez is quick to attach himself to all things Chicago, especially the White Sox.  But #44 couldn't even name a single White Sox player as his favorite?  Check this clip out:



Did he really say "Cominskey Park" in that clip?  So when he welcomed the Saints to the White House he had to pull out his proverbial Bears cap:

"I'm a Bears fan, I'm not going to lie, but this was a big win for the country -- not just New Orleans," the president said. He noted that after Hurricane Katrina the Saints had to play an entire season on the road because their home stadium, the Superdome, was ruined in the storm.
So this got me to thinking.  It's time to give President Obama the Bears fan quiz.  Check out this basic quiz in the gallery below.  If you consider yourself a Bears fan, this is pretty remedial stuff.  

Check back later this season for something a little more challenging.

A lot of Sox fans I know say "Cominskey". It's wrong, but not really a big deal.

If you claim to be the world's biggest Sox fan (which Obama does on a regular basis), you can't call it Cominskey and you had better know a couple of favorite players when you get asked. I guess there wasn't a teleprompter or speech writer handy. Same way I don't let Bears fans get away with calling it Soldier's Field. No excuses.
