United States Vice President Joe Biden will be at the head of the Presidential Delegation that President Barack Obama has sent to represent the country at the Women's World Cup final. Biden has been the Americans' go-to for big sporting events, attending the Olympics and last year's World Cup. The country couldn't have a more enthusiastic statesman at the final.

Joining Biden in Vancouver will be his wife, Dr. Jill Biden. The United States Ambassador to Canada, Bruce Heyman, and Assistant Secretary of State of Educational and Cultural Affairs, Evan Ryan, will also be there. Rounding out the group will be Mia Hamm and Cobi Jones, making for representatives from both the women's and men's teams.

Last summer, Biden talked about how exciting it was to go to the World Cup with his soccer-playing grandchildren. Hopefully his grandchildren will be there again this time around. It would be the thrill of a lifetime to see the U.S. win a World Cup.
