Vice President visits Yankees camp; betrays his Philadelphia Phillies

20 Comments

Vice President Joe Biden is a Phillies fan, but today he visited Yankees camp in Tampa.

Look at him there. Wearing the Yankees gear.

I’m gonna be straight with you: I like Joe Biden. I find him to be a pretty interesting guy. But if I were the Vice President of the United States, I’d wear my own team’s stuff no matter where I was invited.  Someone invites me to a Mets-Phillies game to throw out the first pitch? I’m rockin’ the Braves cap.  They don’t like it? Fine, throw me out. I’m the Vice President, dudes! I got more important things on my schedule!

Wait? You mean I don’t?  Oh, well, that’s awkward.  Well, I suppose I can wear the cap you’d like me to wear.  Say, can I have something from the media room buffet? No?  Um, fine … I’ll just buy a hot dog and sit over there in case anyone needs me.

No one needs me.
