Biden on Date of Super Bowl: Says First Lady ‘Gets to Go to the Game Tomorr—Next Week’

President Joe Biden showed some uncertainty about the date of this year’s Super Bowl in his State of the Union Address on Tuesday night when he started to say that the game would be tomorrow—which would be Wednesday.

“Mr. Speaker, Madam Vice President, our First Lady and Second Gentleman—good to see you guys up there—members of Congress,” Biden said near the start of his speech.

“And, by the way, Chief Justice, I may need a court order,” Biden continued. “She gets to go to the game tomorr–next week. I have to stay home. We got to work something out here.”

In fact, Super Bowl LVII will be played this Sunday at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.

Since a week is considered to start on Sunday, the Super Bowl is in fact “next week.” It was not schedule for the day after Biden’s speech—Wednesday.


Last Friday, First Lady Jill Biden, who is reportedly a Philadelphia Eagles fan, said she would be attending this year’s Super Bowl.

“I’m going. I’ll wave to you at the game,” Jill Biden reportedly told people about the Super Bowl when she was visiting the U.S.S. Gabrielle Giffords, which was docked in San Diego, California.
