He may be 92 and recovering from a nasty bout of pneumonia, but former President George H.W. Bush has signed on to flip the coin before this year’s Super Bowl in his hometown of Houston.
Best of all, his wife, former first lady Barbara Bush, will help him with the honors.
The former president took to Twitter on Wednesday to announce he was “getting fired up” to take part in Sunday’s pregame ritual before the Atlanta Falcons and New England Patriots face off.

But it’s hardly the first time the 41st president has been at the helm of a customary coin toss.
