Women's World Cup: US vice president Joe Biden reportedly attending USA-Japan final

Women's World cup fever is rising by the day in the United States, and it reaches all the way up to the top of the government.

A report on Thursday from political website TheHill.com stated that US vice president Joe Biden would be part of a presidential delegation to the Women's World Cup final in Vancouver on Sunday, where the US national team will take on defending champions Japan (7 pm ET, FOX, NBC Universo in US, TSN in Canada).

Biden will accompany his wife Dr. Jill Biden, who will lead the delegation. Also attending as part of the presidential delegation will be USMNT and LA Galaxy legend Cobi Jones, as well as USWNT icon Mia Hamm, who is also one of the co-owners of MLS expansion team LAFC.

While Biden will cheer on his country at the final, embattled FIFA president Sepp Blatter will reportedly not cross paths with the VP, as he's not traveling to Canada for the final. And that's too bad -- wouldn't you have wanted to be a fly on the suite wall during a potential conversation between the two men?
