President H.W. Bush Will Make Lots Of Gamblers Rich Super Bowl Sunday

Super Bowl LI is getting two of Houston's most famous residents to flip the coin before the game.

The 41st president, George H.W. Bush, and his wife, Barbara, will get the big game started, and that's a big responsibility.

Bettors will plunk down money on anything Super Bowl related, from the length of the national anthem to the color Gatorade that gets dumped on the winning coach. And yes, that includes whether the coin toss comes up heads or tails.

There was some doubt about whether President Bush would be able to attend. In January, the 92-year-old was hospitalized for 12 days with pneumonia.

But now that he's feeling better, a spokesman for the Bushes said the couple "didn't hesitate for one second" before accepting the offer.
