Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images(KISSIMMEE, Fla.) — Rolling to Orlando this evening, President Obama’s bus tour made a surprise stop at a local sports bar for beer and a little college football.

“There he is,” a girl squealed, according to pool reports, as Obama walked into Gators Dockside bar and grill, doing the “gator chomp.”

The president went straight to the bar and ordered a pint of beer before working his way around the room, chatting with patrons as the Florida State vs. Savannah State game played on the TVs.

At one table, the president met a young boy, Andre Wupperman, who informed him he was born in Hawaii, too.

The president asked the boy whether he had a birth certificate, and the whole table cracked up laughing.

At another table, the president came across a birthday celebration and joined the party, leading the group in singing “Happy Birthday” to Sorina Terrell.
