Despite having just won a pretty big contest himself, Vice President-elect Joe Biden seemed awestruck by Phillies Cole Hamels and Pat Burrell Sunday. The three were guests in Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie's suite at Lincoln Financial Field. We're told Biden introduced his wife, Jill, to Burrell, saying she thinks "Pat the Bat" is a stud. Burrell was there with wife, Michelle; Hamels, who wore an A.J. Feeley jersey, was accompanied by "Survivor" bride Heidi Strobel. Biden, we hear, was genuinely psyched to meet the players, asked them questions about how it felt to win the World Series and said the parade must have been excellent. The Delaware pol was glad to pose for pictures with many of the other guests in the Lurie suite. The Secret Service were also surprisingly polite, we hear.
