PHOTO: Barack Obama Throws A Football At Soldier Field After NATO Summit

Chicago was shook to its core by the NATO summit and ensuing protests this weekend, with weaponized riot cops and rowdy objectors creating a surreal scene in the city's streets. Beyond the noise cannons, night sticks and unkempt hippies, actual politicking was getting done at McCormick Place, with President Barack Obama and a host of dignitaries focusing on issues surrounding Afghanistan. After one summit, Obama took his fellow world leaders to dinner at -- where else? -- Soldier Field.

Obama also used the opportunity to toss the pigskin around on the home turf of his favorite football franchise. We've got an image, after the jump...
