Hosting the Super Bowl has some perks, one of which is getting to choose a local celebrity or celebrities to flip the coin before the game begins. President George H.W. Bush and First Lady Barbara Bush will be doing the honors for Super Bowl 51 in their home of Houston, Texas, on Sunday, February 5.

The Bushes, who are recovering from a recent hospitalization, have been Houston residents since they left the White House in 1993. George, who turns 93 on June 12, married Barbara, who turns 92 on June 8, in 1945.

This will be the second time in the past two years that the Bushes have taken part in a pre-game ceremony for a major sporting event in Houston. In October of 2015, the couple performed the ceremonial first pitch before the Major League Baseball playoff game between the Astros and the Kansas City Royals.
