Normally, I’m a huge keeping fan of politics separate from sports, but in this case, an exception is warranted. On Super Bowl Sunday, 41st President George H.W. Bush and his wife Barbara will flip the coin before the game.

Excited, Bush posted a subtle hint to his Twitter on Feb. 1.

Both in their 90s, the former first couple recently recovered from hospital stay for pneumonia. They are looking forward to the game, both are avid fans of Houston sports, where the Super Bowl is hosted this year.
