Stick a flag or cloth in your belt, at your backside. No tackle, light contact. If your flag is pulled, you are “down.”

If Ohio catches wind of “Flag Football” Biden, I doubt Obama
carries the state and loses re-election.

Never have to worry about Biden again.

Joe Biden Fights Hard, Talks Harder Bork Hearings Will Put Senator In The Limelight
September 6, 1987

(snip)

He played basketball, football and baseball in high school, though his father made him quit sports at the University of Delaware to improve his perennial C average.

‘’I was always the little guy on the team,’’ said the 6-foot-tall Biden. ‘’I guess that made me more competitive.’’

The eldest of four children, Biden was the neighborhood leader — class president, the all-purpose athlete, the guy who got the girls, the fellow so popular he never really had a best friend.

Incredibly fun but zero contact is allowed. I played at Auburn and had a blast. We won the campus championship one year beating a team made up of former Auburn (real) football players. But it’s not, in any way, “playing college football”.

Biden ‘s way with words now seems to be a liability

St. Petersburg Times - Sunday, September 20, 1987
Author: JOHN HARWOOD

(Indirect link:
http://www.championshipsubdivision.com/forums//viewtopic.php?f=10&t=1705)

EXCERPTS

In high school, the future senator and presidential candidate used a quick tongue to compensate for not doing homework. An old classmate at Archmere Academy, David Walsh, told the Arizona Republic this spring it was Biden ‘s ‘’God-given gift.’’

At the University of Delaware , he was a mediocre student - 506 out of 688 in the class of 1965. He was ‘’trying to be the complete Joe College,’’ wrote a history professor, ranking Biden average in ‘’intellectual achievement’’ but high in ‘’command of English language.’’ The professor nonetheless recommended the former football and baseball jock for admission to law school ‘’on grounds of personality and general promise.’’

But Biden soon ran into trouble at Syracuse Law. He was accused of plagiarism after lifting five pages from a law review article for a course paper. But his pleading - ‘’I implore you, don't take my honor’’ - convinced the dean to let him stay in school, take the course over, and wipe the slate clean.

Another law dean later told a prospective employer that Biden , who finished 76th in a class of 85, had been an academic ‘’disappointment.’’ But the dean said Biden ‘s ‘’confidence,’’ ‘’general physical appearance’’ and ‘’general speaking ability’’ would help make him a natural trial lawyer.

These gifts ultimately would propel Biden to the U.S. Senate and into the 1988 presidential race. He turned to them again last week when plagiarism allegations threatened his campaign.

(snip)

But it was just last month that Biden appropriated an inspirational speech by British Labor leader Neil Kinnock. Kinnock told of ancestors who played football after long days underground in the mines, who recited poetry poetry and paved the way for him to become the first in his family to attend college.

When he saw a tape of Kinnock in action, Biden said Thursday, ‘’it was a connect. I mean, I could tell how that man felt. That's how I feel.’’

BIDEN KEEPS SIGHTS SET ON WHITE HOUSE - Candidate said to have quick wit, temper

EXCERPT

One bone of contention was the Vietnam War, which Biden supported (he received a medical deferment from the draft for the same asthmatic condition that forced him to stop playing football ). “We would argue vehemently,’ she said, adding that Biden had “turned around completely’ by the time he ran for the Senate in 1972.

Not only was he no activist, but he had no clearly defined party affiliation.

Thanks, will save.
