Da Bears in Da Super Bowl? Moguls Weigh In

If the favored NFC team of energy tycoon T. Boone Pickens makes it to the Super Bowl here, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones says security around the Feb. 6 game will be ramped up off the charts. Pickens says he’s rooting for the Chicago Bears to whip the Green Bay Packers this Sunday, mainly because Bears coach Lovie Smith coached at one time in Pickens’ native Oklahoma. And of course, if Da Bears do prevail, President Obama has vowed to attend the game at Jones’ Cowboys Stadium to support his hometown 11. Pickens, who’s a founding million-dollar sponsor for Super Bowl XLV, also will attend the big game along with 100 guests (family and friends). Says Jones: “We’re a five-star event for Homeland Security, just for the Super Bowl. What are we if the president comes? Off the Richter scale.” Whaddaya bet the feds are rooting for The Pack.
