ABC: In a trip over 20 years in the making, the 1985 Super Bowl champion Chicago Bears finally visited the White House Friday to meet with the president.

… While Super Bowl champions are traditionally honored at the White House, the celebration for the Bears was scrapped when the space shuttle Challenger exploded two days after their January 1986 Super Bowl victory. But President Obama, who is a big fan of his hometown team, is giving them a second chance.
