Joe Biden Lied About Playing College Football For Delaware in the 60's [Update: Sort Of]


Fair and balanced. Here at TBL (a Kabletown subsidiary, formerly of Sheinhardt Wig Company) we strive to be fair and balanced if nothing else. Since we posted about Paul Ryan’s exaggerated marathon time, it is fair and balanced of us to share with you the tall tales of one Mr. Joe Biden, the Vice President of the United States of America.

On Saturday, September 8, 2012, Biden claimed that he had been a part of the Delaware football team that went to Ohio and beat the Bobcats. After that game, he wandered into a girls’ dorm room and almost got arrested.Yeah? Well, he didn’t! From Gateway Pundit:

Joe Biden did not play football at the University of Delaware in 1961, 1962, 1963, or 1964, according to past yearbooks. The 1984 University of Delaware yearbook included an interview with Joe Biden. It’s Biden first ever interview were he talks about his “triple major” (later during Biden’s 1988 presidential campaign he admitted he lied and had two majors, not three) and playing “intramural football” (flag football). There is no mention about him playing college football.

So Paul Ryan doesn’t run as fast as he says he did and Joe Biden lied about playing football for some reason. Paul Ryan is 42. Joe Biden is 69. Both these guys grew up in a time when you could lie about stuff and nobody would pull something out of his pocket and immediately discredit you. They should know better by now though. I mean, it’s 2012!

Update: Biden’s office released a statement saying that he had made the team in the spring of his junior year, but never actually played football. He was just telling the story about how he went to cheer for his team.
