Mason Cox gets to hang out with Vice President Joe Biden


Former Oklahoma State basketball player and current Collingwood FC Magpie was on hand at the MCG to show vice president Joe Biden an "Aussie Rules Football" match.

The vice president sat next to Cox during the match between Carlon and West Coast.

Cox, at 6 foot 11, has never had much lucking getting lost in a crowd. His size is and athleticism have made him stick out even more in the AFL. That and the fact that he's an American who never even held a "Sherrin" the ball they play with until he tried out for an AFL combine in Los Angeles.

Cox has been making a name for himself in his short time in Australia, with 10 goals in 15 games played.
