  • Vice President Joe Biden accidentally referred to the Niners as the Giants during a political fundraiser Wednesday.

Rep. Mike Thompson, D-Napa, sent Vice President Joe Biden a special gift the day after his 49ers gaffe at a fundraiser luncheon in San Francisco on Wednesday. Thompson said mistakenly referring to the Niners as the Giants was understandable considering the local baseball team’s success in 2010, but to ensure it doesn’t happen again Thompson sent Biden a 49ers hat and a bottle of wine.
