Former President George H. W. Bush will do Super Bowl coin toss

It takes more than pneumonia to keep George H.W. Bush from attending the Super Bowl.

Former President George H.W. Bush, 92, and his wife, former First Lady Barbara Bush, 91, are headed to Super Bowl LI on February 5 to participate in the game in a totally epic way.

"The Bushes didn't hesitate for one second in accepting it", said Jim McGrath, the couple's spokesperson. "They were very enthusiastic about wanting to participate and we're honored to have them", Goodell said.

Goodell said that he approached the Bushes in December about taking part in the game in their adopted home town of Houston.

Barbara Bush, meanwhile, checked into the hospital on January 18 "as a precaution after experiencing fatigue and coughing", according to McGrath.
