The NATO activity in Chicago this weekend has drawn attention from around the world. But while the protesting and political debates have cast something of a negative light on so much of the event, that didn't extend to the fields of Chicago.
There was the nice pregame flag ceremony at Wrigley Field for Game 2 of the BP Crosstown Cup, as well as the first pitch thrown out by General John R. Allen, who is the commander of the International Security Assistance Force stationed in Afghanistan.
Then there's this:
U.S. President and Chicago native Barack Obama got to throw the football around on Soldier Field Sunday night after the NATO working dinner.
So if an injury befalls Jay Cutler again, the Bears now know who to call. Obama's got pretty good form. He may need a quicker release, though. Defensive linemen would be on him in a flash.
