TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) -President Barack Obama was rooting for Pittsburgh but that didn't stop him from making a congratulatory call to Arizona coach Ken Whisenhunt.
Obama made the call after the Cardinals were beaten by the Steelers in the Super Bowl.
Whisenhunt says the call came shortly after he returned to his home Monday afternoon.
He says Obama was ``congratulating our team on the success we had had and was very impressed with the way our men had played. And that was quite special.''
``I was actually just walking in my front door,'' Whisenhunt said. ``He called my cell phone. I don't know how they got my number. ... I was humbled and I was stunned.''
