Biden Throws Touchdown Pass In Packer Country

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- He's not quite a replacement for Brett Favre, but Sen. Joe Biden showed off his throwing arm in Green Bay on Sunday night.

Biden had a football with him when he arrived in Packer Country for a Monday morning campaign stop in Green Bay.

He and Wisconsin state Sen. Dave Hansen played a game of catch at the Green Bay airport. Hansen says he went deep, Biden launched the ball, and Hansen put his hands out and caught it in the dark.

Hansen drew cheers when he told the story to about 500 people at the KI Convention Center before Biden spoke.

Green Bay is gearing up for Monday night, when the Packers host the Minnesota Vikings at Lambeau Field in their first regular season game since trading Favre.
