Army-Navy Game 2011: President Barack Obama Expected To Attend

With the Army-Navy Game happening on Saturday at FedEx Field right outside of Washington D.C., it's not a surprise that some very important people will be in attendance. Specifically, we're talking about President Barack Obama. As Joseph White of the Associated Press reports, the midfield suite has been fitted with a security glass, which indicates Obama is coming.

Obama is expected to be joined by his family and the family of Vice President Joe Biden in the suite, according to White. White reports that it's the first time the active president has attended FedEx Field, which is kind of amazing considering it's been over a decade. George H.W. Bush was in attendance for a Redskins game in 2002, but he was obviously not the active president then.
