I'm headed to the floor of the House now to congratulate the @minnesotalynx on the 2013 WNBA Championship http://t.co/pxNK0d4HsI— Rep. Keith Ellison (@keithellison) October 30, 2013
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."
