Vice President Joe Biden mixed up the San Francisco Giants and the 49ers in a fundraiser speech on Wednesday, reports Politico.

“The Giants [are] on their way to the Super Bowl,” said Biden, which drew some boos from the 49ers fans in the crowd. San Francisco fans were particularly irked by the gaff because the 49ers will battle the New York Giants this weekend to earn a spot in the Super Bowl.

Biden quickly apologized for the mix up and explained that the city’s baseball team’s name threw him for a loop, and he was actually speaking about them not the New York Giants. The 49ers, 14-3, beat the New Orleans Saints last weekend in a thrilling 15 minute finish advancing them to the NFC Conference Championship this weekend.
