Vice President Joe Biden’s Giant Gaffe … Tells Donors, “Giants on their way to Super Bowl” … What About the 49′ers?
Biden goes of script once again and decided to ad lib …
Vice President Joe Biden has stepped in it again. In yet just another example of why politicians should never go off script and not talk about sports. At a political fundraiser in San Francisco, VP Joe Biden told those in attendance that, “the Giants are on their way to the Super Bowl.” Obviously, the often confused Biden mixed up the MLB San Francisco Giants with the NFL San Francisco 49′ers. Oops … just one minor problem, the San Francisco 49′ers are playing the NY Giants in the NFC Championship game this weekend, the winner gets a ticket to the Super Bowl.
Vice President Joe Biden had his “oops” moment Wednesday speaking in a 49er-crazed San Francisco when he told a crowd at a city political fundraiser that “the Giants are on their way to the Super Bowl.”
Biden spoke at a closed event in the city’s financial District at the Bently Reserve when he made the gaffe, according to a White House pool report released today.
The comment by Biden drew immediate “good-natured” boos from the crowd, according to the report by Josh Richman of the Oakland Tribune, who was the only local print reporter allowed to cover the event.
After suggesting that the Giants were heading to the Super Bowl, Biden quickly recognized the gaffe and and explained he was accustomed to thinking in terms of the San Francisco Giants and their baseball wins. His next reference was to the “49ers on their way” to the Big Game.
I can’t wait for the gaffe prone VP to call the 2012 election for the GOP.
