President George H.W. Bush, Barbara Bush at Super Bowl For Coin Flip

President George H.W. Bush and his wife Barbara Bush took to center field at the Nrg Stadium to perform the coin flip at Super Bowl Li.

“Help us welcome two special guests,” the announcer said as the former president and first lady emerged.

President Bush tossed the coin, which landed on tails. The Atlanta Falcons won the choice, and elected to defer the choice to the second half.

Many did not expect to see the couple out following their hospitalization at Houston Methodist Hospital just three weeks prior.

The former president had been transferred to the intensive care unit to “address an acute respiratory problem stemming from pneumonia.” The former first lady was also admitted “as a precaution after experiencing fatigue and coughing.”

Both were treated and eventually released. The Bushes were unable to attend Donald Trump’s inauguration on Jan. 20 due to his poor health. Former presidents Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton »

Sunday's Super Bowl will begin with a coin toss, like every NFL game that came before it this season. But the coin toss at the Super Bowl is entirely different than any other game. For one, gamblers actually bet on the toss. And two, the person flipping the coin isn't usually a referee.

On Wednesday, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell revealed who will flip the coin at Super Bowl Li. That honor belongs to the 41st President of the United States, George H.W. Bush, and the former First Lady, Barbara Bush.
