President Obama is rooting on the Pittsburgh Steelers in the Super Bowl today.

Check out this video of then-Senator Obama on March 29th of 2008 in Steelers country.

"It’s my own terrible towel," Obama joked as he waved a blue towel in the air given to him by former Steelers Jerome Bettis (aka The Bus) and Franco Harris.

Bettis and Harris accompanied Obama on a bus tour throughout Pennsylvania that day.

Obama’s relationship with the Steelers goes all the way to the top as well: owner and chairman Dan Rooney endorsed Obama’s candidacy in April.
