MetLife Stadium, in East Rutherford, N.J., is hosting the Super Bowl in February.

Or is it?

Apparently, Vice President Joe Biden doesn’t think so.

During an online immigration forum hosted by Skype and Bing, Biden fielded a question from a New Jersey resident. The man told the vice president that he lives near the stadium that is the site of the next Super Bowl.

Biden replied, “Maybe not this year.”

The NFL awarded the 2014 Super Bowl to MetLife Stadium — home of the New York Giants and Jets — back in 2010.

The exchange was just the latest example of what friends and foes have dubbed “Joe being Joe.”

And it’s not the first time Biden has been confused about the Super Bowl.

At a San Francisco fundraiser in 2012, Biden told the crowd that the “Giants are on their way to the Super Bowl.”

After a few boos, Biden realized his error and said the 49ers were destined for the Super Bowl.
