John Harbaugh, Ravens want to disappoint President Obama with win over the Bears

The Ravens are taking on President Obama's favorite team, the Chicago Bears, this Sunday. - USA TODAY Sports

President Obama's a Bears fan. The Ravens play the Bears this Sunday.

John Harbaugh and the Ravens had the privilege of meeting President Obama after defeating the 49ers in Super Bowll XLVII.

It was a cordial affair, with the team posing for pictures with President Obama, while giving him a Ravens jersey with the No. 44, representing the fact that he's the 44th President of the United States.

Though Ravens coach John Harbaugh and President Obama chummed it up some, the two will be on polar opposites this Sunday. Obama, who was once a U.S. Senator representing Illinois, is a die-hard Chicago Bears fan. With the Ravens set to take on the Bears this week, President Obama probably won't have the same carefree thoughts he had when the Ravens visited his home.

Earlier this week, Harbaugh was reminded that President Obama even told the team he'd root against them when the two teams met this season.

"We appreciate the President and the fact that he's a huge football fan and sports fan," Harbaugh told reporters. "I'm sure he'll be watching this game very closely, and we'll do our best to disappoint him."
