Former Vice President Joe Biden just learned that it is never wise to bet against Tom Brady in the Super Bowl.
Biden’s politically correct preference of Kansas City Chiefs gunslinger Patrick Mahomes over the six-time (now seven) Super Bowl-winning GOAT jinxed the defending champion Kansas City Chiefs who were clobbered by Brady’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday.
During a pregame interview with lunchbucket Joe and Dr. Jill, CBS’s Norah O’Donnell asked the newly installed 46th president who he would rather be on the receiving end of a throw from when it came to the big game’s two quarterbacks.
O’Donnell set up Biden by harkening back to his immortal football career as a high school wideout in Delaware.
Delighted @NorahODonnell to President Biden: “Many people may not know you were once a pretty good receiver yourself back in the day. As a former receiver, which quarterback would you rather have throw to you? Tom Brady or Mahomes?” #SuperBowlpic.twitter.com/nXAskf89kP

President Biden said that when was younger, he didn’t dream of being president, but of playing for the NFL. “CBS Evening News” anchor and managing editor Norah O’Donnell spoke to Mr. Biden in the first network news interview he has given since his inauguration.
“I had wild dreams,” Mr. Biden said. “It wasn’t to be president. I thought I could be a flanker back in the NFL.”
Mr. Biden played receiver in high school in Delaware. His coach, E. John Walsh, told The New York Times in 2008 that Mr. Biden was “one of the best pass receivers I had in 16 years as a coach.” He also played freshman football at the University of Delaware.
O’Donnell asked him that as a former receiver, which of Sunday’s star quarterbacks would he rather be playing with: Forty-three-year-old NFL legend Tom Brady, or 25-year-old reigning MVP Patrick Mahomes?
“Obviously, Brady’s a great quarterback,” Mr. Biden said. “Mahomes seems like he’s got a lot of potential. And so, I’d probably take a shot with the young guy I didn’t expect as much from.”
Biden didn’t indulge his interviewer by picking a winner but there are few sports figures who are more widely despised by the unhinged left than Brady who never bent a knee by caving to pressure and denouncing former President Donald J. Trump. Brady also was spotted with a red MAGA hat hanging in his locker several years ago.
A few hours after Biden’s interview aired, Brady was hoisting the Vince Lombardi Trophy for the seventh time after a historic 31-9 beatdown of Mahomes and the Chiefs.

Mahomes had one of the worst games of his young career following Biden’s pick. He ran for his life all night long to escape a ferocious pass rush that avenged a Thanksgiving weekend regular-season loss to the magic man who carved them up like a turkey.
Tampa Bay sacked Mahomes three times and picked him off twice.
GET LIVE, TAMPA BAY!!!

Call it the Biden jinx.
Brady didn’t put up great numbers in the game but connected for three touchdowns including two to former Patriot teammate Rob Gronkowski, winning not only his seventh title but his fifth Super Bowl MVP as well.
The game itself didn’t live up to the hype and viewers were subjected to a nauseating orgy of “woke” propaganda, including the inclusion of the “Black National Anthem” before the real one. They dialso inundated viewers with an onslaught of virtue-signaling commercials that were a fitting end to a season in which the NFL embraced the toxic message of the Marxist-inspired Black Lives Matter movement.
Filthy rich pop superstar Bruce Springsteen even showed up in a Jeep commercial calling for unity, something that he never did during four years of trashing Trump and his supporters.
Despite planting a flag in the corporate-sponsored culture war, millions of liberals cried themselves to sleep on Sunday night as Brady once again had the last laugh.
