GOP VP candidate Ryan mixes football with politics

BOWLING GREEN, Ohio (AP) -- Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan spent his afternoon mixing football and politics in Ohio.

Ryan mingled with fans at Bowling Green State University in northwest Ohio on Saturday before the Falcons took on his alma mater, Miami University.

Ryan was greeted by a friendly crowd at a tailgate party hosted by the College Republicans.

The only heckling he heard was "Go Falcons."

Ryan didn't make any formal remarks. Instead, he played a bean-bag toss game with his children and ate bratwurst and potato salad. His 7-year-old son, Sam, won the game.

Ryan met with students and the president of Bowling Green, leaving before the game started. He joked at one point about not seeing many Miami fans in the crowd.
