|President Barack Obama personally congratulated the Steelers for their Super Bowl XLIII victory Thursday.|
The president celebrated the Steelers' title at a White House ceremony. Obama and the players also met with wounded U.S. service members and assembled care packages for troops serving overseas.
Obama joked that no matter how big those Steeler players are, he told them he'll always be a Bears fan first. But the president said he rooted for the Steelers over the Arizona Cardinals in the Super Bowl.
