Video: Rep. Keith Ellison congratulates Minnesota Lynx on 2013 WNBA championship

Rep. Keith Ellison took to the U.S. House floor yesterday to congratulate the Minnesota Lynx on winning the 2013 WNBA Finals, their second championship in three years.

Perhaps you can guess my favorite part of Rep. Keith Ellison's (D-MN) statement on the U.S. House floor yesterday to congratulate the Minnesota Lynx:

"I'm proud of the Minnesota Lynx, but I'm even more proud of Title IX - (in) 1973, this country came to make sure of equality for women in education and that includes sports. And the result is women in athletics that are amazing and entertaining."
