As BP’s oil spill disaster has consumed America, President Obama has had to devote most of his time and attention toward it. Joe Biden on the other hand is in a different situation, or should I say country.

While President Obama deals with the disastrous event in the gulf, Vice President Biden will be in South Africa attending the World Cup, “representing the United States” as he puts it.

Obama wasn’t too thrilled about Biden’s departure. “I am honored to be (here) representing the United States. The president is angry,” as he puts it.

Apparently Biden is part-Irish, saying “In the spirit of a genuine Irishman, we are going to beat England.” Surprisingly no one asked him why Ireland is absent from the World Cup this year, and what he thinks about Thierry Henry.

I’m sure he’ll get plenty of face time during the USA-England match on Saturday, which begins at 2:30 p.m. on ESPN.

The World Cup starts in June, and while Spain and Brazil are the up front favorites, British rapper Dizzee Rascal likes his resident country England’s chances.

He’s also apparently an American baseball fan. Trying to suck up to Obama on behalf of the prime minister, perhaps?

Rascal has never been to a soccer game before, but he’s making the trip to watch England’s opener against the USA. The rapper will also perform at the Cool Britannia festival in South Africa during the tournament.

According to Dizzee Rascal, Wayne Rooney and Steven Gerrard are the key players for England. According to me, Dizzee Rascal is quite possibly the best rapper alias in the world.

Soccer’s biggest worldwide icon won’t be participating in the World Cup, but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t have other plans.

David Beckham suffered a tendon injury in March, but that hasn’t stopped him from being active. The Englishman visited the troops overseas in Afghanistan, where he also got the privilege of handling some heavy weapons and equipment.
